I drive a 2008 Silverado LTZ loaded 5.3 4X4 with 3.73 rear. It weighs 6100 loaded for camping. I tow a Rockwood 2604SS I don't have the FR specs in front of me, but it weighs 6200 loaded for camping. I tows great in the flats and ok in the hills. It did good going to Rapid City SD last spring. I have not towed it in the "Big Mountains" yet. I don't think it will do well there. I will find out this summer, we are going to Banff Canada for 6 weeks. Might need a new truck when I get back.

I used an 03 alvanche to pull a grey wolf TT. No problem but I knew it was there. I did add a transmission cooler, pulled camper from IN to GA and back. When I purchased a 2500 HD truck I bought a 5th wheel. A better experience.

We tow our 2008 Rockwood 8317SS with a 2010 5.4 F-150 XTR Supercrew. Ordered truck with the max trailer tow package. Truck has a 11,200 tow rating. Use the Reese hitch dual cam load leveling/antisway system. Tows with ease and no white knuckle driving. Although I am 100% happy with my towing, if I had been able to wait, I would have purchased the 2011 F-150 with the Ecoboost (even more hp, torque and better fuel economy).

I dont pick it up til April, I am looking at buying a transmission cooler, and a good weight distribution hitch with sway control. I will try it a time or two here in Ohio which is not known for mountains. If I need to go to a bigger truck, I will approach that later.
