Yes. You would be perfectly fine. You want to keep an eye on the payload in your Tahoe. Your at 1545 but you'll need to subtract the hitch weight off the top, so that should leave with around.. say.. 1000#'s (as a margin of error and dealer options) for passengers and cargo.
They other weight you'll want to keep an eye on is your Palomino. Dressed out and loaded you're probably going to be in the neighborhood 4500-5000. Even though that isn't maxing out the cargo capacity of your Palo.. it's pushing max on your tow rating. 1000-1500#'s isn't difficult to come up with in a typical load out. Water, battery/ies, fuels, tools, jacks, etc etc...
That's also getting right up there on your gross combined vehicle weight if your Tahoe is loaded out as well.
Best recommend would to make a test load out then run it down to your local truck stop and hit the scales. You will also want to check your actual pin weight. You may need to adjust your weight load in your Palo to get a level tow.. you don't want your pin to be too heavy, but then again, you don't want it too light either or you might get excessive sway.
I would still run that setup with a weight distribution hitch, so again.. that weight would need to be subtracted from your Tahoe's payload capacity.
I hope that'll get you started. A little care and some fine adjusting and you should be golden.
