The Cherokee 21RR is claimed to be 4407# UVW, 4600# more like it with gas, battery, etc. With 1500# to 1700# of "stuff" including my Vulcan 900LT the grand total is about 6300# with 680# of that on the tongue. It could use a better sway control, but pulls great on flat country and possible in the mountains. Staying under 65 it averages a skosh under 11MPG with trailer... at 70-75 without the trailer a little over 18MPG. Chevy says 20MPG... never happen! And, I get better than average as a driver.
I have a 2013 Silverado, z71 4 x 4 with heavy duty tow pack, 3.42 gears 5.3l vortec with 6speed transmission. DO YOU SEE ANY PROBLEMS PUULING A 2017 GULFSTREAM CONQUEST 274QB I SAIDS DRY WEIGHT IS 5270LBS

I'm sure it would be better with a bigger truck but...
I have a 2014 Silverado 1/2 ton high country with the tow package, pull a forest river evo gross wt 4800 by the time it's loaded close to ..6000. Never weighed it. We went to South Dakota and thru Colorado without a problem. If you don't already know learn how to use the tow haul with the transmission. I used the manual mode going up hills and stayed in the same gear going down. A very must is a 10000 lb 4 way equalizer hitch or equal. Enjoy!!! We love taking the trailer out.

ATTACHMENTS AND IMAGES
How do I attach a file to a post?

To attach a file to your post, you need to be using the main 'New Post' or 'New Thread' page and not 'Quick Reply'. To use the main 'New Post' page, click the 'Post Reply' button in the relevant thread. Then click 'Go Advanced.'

On this page, below the message box, you will find a button labelled 'Manage Attachments'. Clicking this button will open a new window for uploading attachments. You can upload an attachment either from your computer or from another URL by using the appropriate box on this page. Alternatively you can click the Attachment Icon to open this page.

To upload a file from your computer, click the 'Browse' button and locate the file. To upload a file from another URL, enter the full URL for the file in the second box on this page. Once you have completed one of the boxes, click 'Upload'.

Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window. You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.

What files types can I use? How large can attachments be?

In the attachment window you will find a list of the allowed file types and their maximum sizes. Files that are larger than these sizes will be rejected. There may also be an overall quota limit to the number of attachments you can post to the board.

How do I add an image to a post?

If you have uploaded an image as an attachment, you can click the arrow next to the 'Attachment Icon' and select it from the list. This will be inserted into your post and can be located where you want it displayed.

To include an image that is not uploaded as an attachment and is located on another website, you can do so by copying the full URL to the image, (not the page on which the image is located), and either pressing the 'Insert Image' icon or by typing [img] before the URL and [/img] after it, ensuring that you do not have any spaces before or after the URL of the image. You can insert pictures from your albums (?) in this way too.
