I'm using a 2015.5 GMC 3500 with a 6.0 Gas. It pulled it surprising well.

bmallak,
I'm hoping next year I can upgrade to your TV (my current 2004 is starting to show her age...). How has the 6.0 handled any good size hills/grades?

Not much yet. I don't expect it to pull like a diesel but the magority of where we go is fairly flat. We will see how it does when we add a couple thousand pounds of cargo. I can tell you this truck is much more stable than my 2007 classic was.

I agree the 6.0 will not pull like a diesel but for me it will be a daily driver.
Looking forward to any reports you have with full load in the garage or some steep grades.
Thanks...

Moto,
Why did you tell me about Laura's GMC. Window shopping is the worst...

does anyone know if the fresh water tank is over the axels? That is where the drain appears to be. I just assumed it would be in the front half of the trailer. The water pump is up front by the storage area
