Any suggestions or recommendations would be helpful.
The Tacoma was a V6 with the TRD Sport Package which gave it a 6500 lb tow capacity. The vehicle was fine pulling the trailer, but you definitely needed to make sure the trailer was properly loaded. I'm sure your Trailblazer can handle it, but it's sure close to the edge of its envelope.
After looking for a while, our remaining choices were either a Keystone Passport 238ML, or our 230BH. The bedroom, U-shaped dinette, and the better decor sealed it for us.
Good luck with the search, and I'm curiou what you end up with.
