1997 3/4 suburban pulling a 2015 21ss 286,000 and still going. Cheaper than a new truck payment.

Our 1994 Suburban is perfect for pulling our 2015 Salem TT. Very comfortable ride and can haul the extra gear we can't store in the trailer. Plus, it provides a bedroom for our Sheltie who'd rather sleep there. While it won't pass some of the newer tow vehicles, it's sturdy and looks good! Only 103,000 miles.

Still have my 2005 with 99,225 miles. I'm still amazed at how well it pulls our 5th wheel. I recently test drove the 2015 GMC, but I can't justify/afford to get a new one. Maybe someday. Jerry

'02 Suburban LT 2500 with 8.1 L Power Plant.

Bought in '04 and haven't had a vehicle payment in over 6 years. Max Tow is 10,400 lbs. Tows our '05 Jayco Eagle TT (GVWR 9K) fine. Dream is Dually PU and big Fiver for retirement. Reality is probably keeping Burb and getting a couples TT. Will get shorter/lighter TT if we go out west to Rockies.


Had '02 Rockwood Roo 21 for 3 years. Looking again at FR products (Rockwood Ultra light, Windjammer, Surveyor, Evo) for next TT.

99 Suburban C2500 towing a 2015 Lacrosse 329BHT. New trailer was a higher priority than new tow vehicle. We love our Suburban and put a new GM crate engine in her last year. Good to go for another 15 years or until I can afford a newer TV. Only thing I worry about with an older vehicle is the impact of ethanol contained in today's gasoline on engines which were not designed for it.

If you bent some flat bar from the windsheild toward rear, down back window, then out toward rear OVER the deck lid, you would't have to imbed the ball in the deck, and then just back into shop and she'd never see it..... twist the rear view mirror off. Just thinking.
