Suburban 2500...TT to big?? opinions

I am looking at up grading my TT.....To a wildwood LA 312QBBS

The floor plans I like weigh in from 7800 lbs to 8050 lbs. Dry.

TV = 2008 Suburban 25002008 Suburban 2500

I have the ProPrideProPride Hitch on my current TT and will use it on the new one to help counter the weight/length sway issues.

Up grade the Wheels/Tires to 17" and Michelin LTX EMichelin LTX E Tires (less sidewall Flex)

I have the stock 3.73 rear in it.....I will switch to 4.11 if necessary.

I will also put in Rear Spring air bags if necessary.

The truck has a 2200 lb payload capacity, of which we use about 600-650 lbs of.

We probably add 800-1100 lbs of cargo to the dry weight of the trailer (we never travel with anything in the Fresh/Black/Grey Tanks)

I'd Rather be camping!

I suspect you'll be fine with that setup.
