Yukon Towing

Please help. looking for correct info for towing with a 2008 Yukon XL. I am picking up my new '14 Roo 233s tomorrow and trying to find the right setup for my Yukon. I have spend some time searching on what to get. Weight Dist... Dual Cams... Sway control... Friction... Ugh. I am just looking for the correct answer and what to buy. 600/800/1200/1500 weight... information overload. Please help. Any clarity will be greatly appreciated

While you wait for others to drop in and offer feedback I wanted to say hi and welcome to the forum!

Here is where my limited knowledge will show - I used my sister's 2006 Yukon to tow with when I first I brought my TT with the sway control and weight dist. bars but I don't recall the weight range. I believe the sway control is friction but for sure it's not the upgraded item but has worked well for my use.


Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Thank you for your input. I have been looking at a lot of websites to get it ordered and unfortunately don't have the manual in front of me to look up some of them info I need. I.E. tonge weight and other info. Im interested in the Reese Hitch line. Just not sure what they want to know about the 6/8/12/1500 of what they put on there. Time for some serious web surfing! But thank you !

For quicker info on your truck, you might want to get on a GM truck/SUV chat site.
