We went with the V lite trailer over the same floorplan 5th wheel. The V lite has 2 slide outs, was 1 foot longer, has a HUGE front closet, and is lighter weight, and to have the 5th hitch I was told a little over 1000.00. The Reese set up I have now with the dual cam setup, and trailer brakes was just shy of 500.00, AND I still have my bed. lso 2000.00 cheaper! Randy

Beware of towing with a Trailblazer. I have an 02 TB and I would be afraid of pulling anything of any size with it. We have a 18' Ranger bass boat and it is all my TB wants to handle it. Tranny wants to heat and run warm. Remember you have to stop it to. Our DD has a TB also and she bought a 21' Aruba thinking that it fell under the weight ratio her TB could pull. WRONG You talk about the tail wagging the dog. That was almost ugly. She now pulls it with a 3/4 ton PU.

Misinformation abounds. I did not see any mention as to size of trailer he wants to pull. Our friends pull a 28'Rockwood signature series trailer with no problems at all with Olds Bravada which I believe is same vehicle as trailblazer.

Hr 29cks

We tow a 29cks Holiday Rambler w/ss with our F150 and it does a good job, although it was a little stressed in the Adirondack mountains. Trailer is 6919 dry.
