6,700 lb TT w/ '12 Chevy Silverado 5.3/3.42's
Good-morning everyone and thanks for having me...
I do have a quick question (I probably know the answer but am somehow trying to rationalize this pending purchase).
I'm seriously contemplating the purchase of a new '13 Prime Time Tracer Executive Series TT (3150BHD) at a local dealership (Tucson, AZ) but am somewhat hesitant due to the TT's weight (6,700 lbs -- dry). My TV is a '12 Chevrolet Silverado 4x4-Z71, with the 5.3 ltr V8 and 3.42 gears. That being said, my max allowable trailer weight (to include passengers, gear, etc.) is ~9,600 lbs. This equates to pulling ~70% of my trucks max allowable gear/trailer weight without putting anyting in the TV/TT.
If I were back home driving the plains of TX I don't think I'd be that concerned; however, being stationed in AZ and traveling through the mountains of Northern AZ, with my wife and children at my side leaves me somewhat hesitant.
Anyone else pulling these kind of loads w/ a similar TV?
Thanks in advance for the advice.
