salesmen will say anything to close the deal and they don't care whether your vehicle can actually tow it.
once you leave the lot, you leave their responsibility.
i have an Avalanche, basically the same vehicle as the Yukon XL with a pickup bed and i would never tow that big and heavy a trailer, especially with my family in it.
your rating of 8100lbs. is ONLY if there's just a 150lb. driver in it. anything additional in the Yukon, will lower that 8100 number by its weight.
so, if Mom weighs 150lbs. and Dad and the kids total 500lbs. and there's another 100lbs in it, then your Yukon towing number is down to 7500lbs.
so, bottom line, with a loaded vehicle/trailer and a WDH, your Yukon could be at or over its max towing.
