Enough truck?

I have a 2016 silverado z71 1500 with towing package. do I have enough truck to tow this? according to the numbers I can tow this but I dont want to have a miserable trip. I plan on putting a rzr 900 in the back which runs about 1200 pounds I think. Thanks guys. I know a 2500 would be better but I cant fit one in my garage.

I probably should have mentioned I am looking at a 29hfs XLR with a rzr in the back.

It will tow it but your gonna need some mods - E ply tires - air bags, if 4l60 trany gonna need to beef it up to 5 sprague planets instead of 4 and get a real transmission cooler instead of that 4incb POS trans cooler that GM put on their tow packages lol - steep grade you'll be in the slow lane with the slow semi trucks w flashers on -- I have theses mods and quadrasteer- plus some engine mods - - a 1ton would be nice but not in my cards yet either - Eply tires are a must or u won't get over 60 before the sway monster kicks in.

I'm gonna go ahead and tell you no.

It will pull it straight on a nice day, after that, good luck. Stopping, winds, sway, and everything will be tough...

I am close to the same. I have a 29hfs and pull with f150 ecoboost. It pulls it go but with aluminum body and such you are giving up some weight.

My truck rating and gcwr are still in parameters. I only travel within an hr or so.

Fully loses with my golf cart or atv I am at about 8750-9000 depending on water. I'm rated for 11,700 on
truck.

What engine ? if you have the 6.2 ok if the smaller you will not like it so much . i have the 2500 6.0 and do fine would not use anything smaller to tow this unit with . i do not believe the 29 is truly 1/2 towable . you have 1100 to 1250 tw.
