Hi all. My husband and I fell in love with the 274VFK last weekend, but I'm worried that it might be too much for our 1/2 ton Silverado. I noticed the RK model is slightly lighter (not a whole lot but enough that I thought it might be a better choice), and just as nice as the VFK. We are going to look at the RK Friday and if we like it we plan to purchase it. We have a 2003 Silverado 1500 4WD ext. cab Z71 with towing package (including tranny cooler), 5300 V8, 4.10 axle ratio, all that good stuff. We've hauled plenty of trailers with it and it has done fine, but never something this size. I did the math and and it's going to be close, but should be within our limits as long as we don't go overboard with gear.
I noticed a lot of y'all said you pull with a 1/2 ton and I'm curious how well they handle it. Any tips for us newbies?
