the OP is buying a 2007 8314SS, which is lighter and slightly shorter than the new 8314SS.
2007 8314SS specs:
"dry" tongue weight- 543lbs.
"dry" weight- 5971lbs.
so, unless the brochure weights are way off for the '07 model, they will be within specs. and i don't know why the older model has such different specs, other than FR putting in heavier axles to increase the CCC.
but i own an Avalanche, the same size/chassis as the Escalade, and i would never tow a trailer that length, no matter how light it was.
