Yea the state parks look to me very roomy, we haven't made our maiden voyage yet but it will be soon! I am in SC. Based on the internet research there is several right in my back yard to visit. I have also been practicing with my rig, I am getting more comfortable each time I hook up and go for a spin, my tahoe seems to handle everything very well, good power, good braking, we shall see when we hit the mountains. Funny I have found myself putting together a camper bucket list! Too funny!!!

New greywolf guy

I just bought a new 2011 greywolf 26bh, been camping over 25 years and always had a good time, i just hope everything goes fine with the new camper, but i did buy the fr extra year warranty for $150.00 i think it was a great price for a extra year. Have fun and enjoy it.

Welcome and hope you enjoy your camper. Where in SC are you . I was raised in a small town 25 miles south of greenville.

Hey Bill and Theresa, say you were raised south of greenville, I am located right outside of Columbia. Hey does your Silverado pull your camper okay?
Im pulling my camper with a 2004 Tahoe. Seems to handle it okay, not a power house but does okay.

Now that's what I call a good truck! I sure hope I get that kind of mileage out of my Tahoe! How much does the camper weight? Mine shakes out at about 5500 lbs so Tahoe handles it pretty good, not a power house for sure but handles it okay.

I have the rockwood ultra light 8313. according to truck stop scales it weighs 6800 lbs loaded the way we camp. The truck has the heavy duty tow package.3.73 gears and 5.3 v8. gets 20 MPG alone and 9 towing. It has been a good one. Its rated to tow 7500 lbs.

Yep that's the same package my Tahoe has, 3.73 rear-end and a 5.3. Wow 9 mph towing huh! Geese, that's exactly what I can expect, cause I have gotten 20 on the highway with it. You have one of those weight distribution hitches with a anti sway system? That's what I bought with the camper and it all seems to work really well.
