If we add a transmission cooler + use tow tires along with electric brake would that increase our options?
first, it would help to know the year and if it has the factory tow package. i'm assuming it doesn't since you are talking about adding a trans cooler.
second, adding the cooler, tow tires and brake controller(which is required by law and not an option if you tow a trailer w/elec. brakes), doesn't change what you can tow.
you won't have an easy time finding a quad bunk TT within your Burb's tow capacity. they're out there, just not many.
if the Burb has the factory tow package, your max towing will be around 7000lbs. and that's with only a 150lb. driver. additional passengers and any cargo in the car, lowers that 7000 number.
i have an '07 Avalanche, built on the same GM900 chassis as the Burb. i tow out West and my HTT weighs about 5000lbs. loaded. i woudn't tow anything over 5500lbs. loaded, with it.
