The GVWR is the critical factor. How many civilization are in her family? have you weighed the "burb to determine your yes, really curb wieght? as soon as you begin throwing in people and also stuff that curb load will easily surpass 6,000#. The hitch load is an additional unknown. 850# is the published DRY hitch weight. Once you add a battery, full propane tanks, and stuff you will easily be over 1,000# ~ above the hitch.My point here is the you will most likely eclipse the GVWR of the burb v this combination. Personally, ns wouldn"t want to push the burb the far.KJ "14 ram 2500|Crew Cab long Bed|4X4|CumminsCurt Q20 with Ram fifth Wheel Prep2000 Crownline 205BR1997 Ranger Comanche 461VS"01 Polaris Virage TX PWC"94 Polaris SLT750 PWC3 exorbitant Sons (21, 15, & 13)1 forgiving wife!!!

Here is a copy the GM"s Trailering and Towing overview for 2001/2 models.Note that your Suburban that "that" year is rated because that 13,000 lbs GCWR.

">That method with a 7,100 lb trailer, (13,000 - 7,100) her Suburbancan weigh no much more than 5,900 lbs.That method with a 7,200 lb Sub, (13,000 - 7,200) her Trailercan sweet no more than 5,800 lbs.Or some combo that these. NOTE that the curb that 5,567 lbs is veryclose come the "maximum" weights enabled by the above formulas. Meaningyour Suburban need to be in ~ "curb" come tow the MTWR, so make sure yourSub is the "base" or "stripper" model with nothing loaded into it, otherthan one 150 lb driver (that is just how they obtained the max ratings).Best to weigh the entirety setup axle by axle, both empty and fullyloaded all set to go.Most SUVs will acquire into rear GAWR or GVWR trouble method before theyreach MTWR or GCWR.Bottom line: look for a TT in the 5K-6K lb max weight selection *AND* watch the rear GAWR the the 15% tongue weight will added. Your "dry"weight is the "stripper" model with no appliances, no propane bottles,no spare, no AC, no awning, nothing. It will weigh 1K-2K or more overtheir "dry" weight. So the trailer is possibly okay to over dependingon just how you alternative it and also load that up.Plus your"s has actually a twin front suspension spring mechanism (BigToe pointedthat out), so can"t gain the "equal" drop dominion of thumb. And suggestyou replace the POS GM receiver through a traditional receiver. About$150 bucks add to 1 hours labor.
