I have a 2012 Silverado Texas edition with 5.3 v8 and a 3.08 ratio. Brother has. 5800 dry weight travel trailer so I'm hoping I can borrow it. I'll be getting tires suitable for towing and an equalizer hitch if I do tow it but would that be alright. I've called several different RV places and they thought it was fine.

What's your thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

It won't be super happy but it will do it. Just let it do its thing. It will want to Rev high since it won't be able to hold the higher gears too well.

Well the main thing I'd worry about is trans temp. So keep an eye on that. If it climbs too high I'd definitely pull over and let it cool down.

I'd also want to change the trans fluid and filter more often. Along with rear diff oil and engine oil. Really everything will be working harder. But it's that way towing with anything.
