Towing limits with my 2500HD w/6.0

Towing limits with my 2500HD w/6.0

Postby charlie25 [OP] » Jul 08 2012, 1:09am

I am looking for a new to me 5th wheel. I have a 2007 2500HD 4x4 w/6.0 and 4:10 gears with 6L90E trans. I will have the mountains to contend with at times and am concerned with total weight of the 5th wheel. I have been looking at trailers with UVW of 8,000 pounds. Not having pulled a 5th wheel before, I thought I would enlist those of you who have and the results you have found. Thanks in advace.....

I find pulling a fifth wheel is easier and safer than a bumper pull. 8,000pounds, you probably wouldn't even know it's back there.
