Very nice set up! Bet it's easy to hit the small campgrounds and out backs!
I miss that now with the bigger trailer.

Where is that legal? ...and do you need an endorsement on your license? I'm in Ohio. Just curious.

Yeah,... and It squats a lot less than my old 04 Silverado. The owners manual suggested a WDH for trailers 5,000 lbs and above.

It's a tweener truck and it will out perform any 1/2 ton on the road. It's not a super duty 3/4 ton truck. If I needed one I would have bought one.

It pulls my camper like it's not there. The ride is superb, it's quite, and the sound system is amazing....and it was $15,000 less than the Duramax with an equivalent package.

Payload on that truck makes it just another half ton being there are others with much more. Instead of 12K, it's more like 7.5K towing capacity with a TT.
