Well, I feel Dusty's comment should be revisited. Without knowing his rear axle ratio I will put the max camper weights for each axle here for his reference.
(they are for the 2011 Avalanche)
4WD 5.3L V-8 3:08 rear = 4,900 pound camper
4WD 5.3L V-8 3:42 rear = 5,400 pound camper
4WD 5.3L V-8 3:42 with HD cooling package = 7,900 pound camper
