Question Towing help with Grey Wolf 26BH

Hi all, I'm pretty much a newbie on this forum. I did quite a bit of searching here as there's a lot of great information, but still need some specific feedback on towing a travel trailer.

We are looking at getting a 26' travel trailer (Grey Wolf 26BH). This one we are looking at is about 4100# dry with a 7400# GVW.

We have a 2000 1500 Suburban (5.3L V8) with factory tow package, Prodigy controller, and of course, sway/distribution bars. Would anyone see any issues w/ this trailer and set up while running around down here in So Cal?

The owner's manual states 7800#, but looking for folks and their feedback that tow close to the 8000# and if there were any issues w/ the Suburbans (on hills, over heating, brake issues, etc).

Also, anyone out there have the 26BH or 22BH, if so, open to any thoughts.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Our 2005 Yukon XL tows our trailer fine. ( 8317ss )

Dry I believe it weighs around 6600#, and with the fresh water tank full and gear we're weighing around 7200#.

I don't think you'll have any problems with your setup.

Happy camping!

Towing help with Grey Wolf 26BH

Just bought a 26BH and picked it up almost 2 hours from home on Saturday. Brand new to this, never towed anything. I have a 2002 Chevy Avalanche, only a 1/2 ton truck; towed the trailer just fine, including going up a very steep mountain. I had weight distribution and a sway bar installed for my own piece of mind. Also get a good brake controller, I have a Prodigy P2. I had a lot of trouble learning how to back the trailer up, but that will come with practice. I went to a church parking lot to practice before going home.
