My trailer is a rockwood 8325ss 35 ft long that weighs 7800 lbs.Think tongue weight is around 700 lbs.
I had towed it with a Chevy 2500 HD with the 6.2 gas engine with no problems what so ever with sway or power. The big rigs can fly by and I didn't feel a thing.
I traded it a couple weeks ago for a Gmc 2500 HD with the duramax 6.6 long wheel base .
Hadn't towed with it yet but the older 2500 duramax I had back in 2011 had gotten 13.8 mpg towing a 10,000 lb fifth wheeler Sabra.
The truck I just bought is a monster that gets 26-28 mpg on the highway not towing.
Can't wait to see how it does in a couple weeks and will let you all know.
It's. 2013 GMC SLE package which had only 16,700 miles when I bought it for 36,800 with the factory warranty still on it.
