You have shown your numbers and your setup is good. The problem is when the vague question of "can I tow this with a 1/2 ton" comes up, it's almost impossible to answer. The tow ratings of 1/2 tons varies too much. From 5000 to 11,000 lbs. Payload varies greatly too.

Thanks guys. I may go with a little lighter trailer. My tow rating is 9300 pounds due to having the 3.42 gears. The trailer I'm looking at is a sport trek 302vth by venture rv (kz) it is 6480 dry and gvwr of 8600

I would still switch to E ply tires and add a transmission cooler

And you might want actually weigh any trailer your looking to buy before you drive it off the lot - I've noticed actual weight and sticker weight can be very different

Good luck

You still haven't discussed payload. What's the tongue weight of the venture and how much stuff (wife/kids/etc) are you putting in it?

Just askin'.

So your vehicle is far from stock, but you're telling the OP he can pull the same as you with a stock vehicle??

Polishdon For the record

If you read my first post -#6 post in this discussion - right after your post I stated what would need to be done to pull the 29hfs with a Chevy if he had a 4L60 transmission in his Chevy and other mods --if he has the 4L80 or above there would be no problems except towing up very steep grades - you just gonna be slow up steep inclines ---
