How much will it really tow

Towing Capabilities

Postby retiredworker [OP] » Jan 22 2020, 10:43pm

Good Day
I am new to this site and just leased a Chevy Truck.
It is a 2018 Silverado 1500 All Star Edition. 5.3 V8 6 spd Automatic with a 3.08 Gear Ratio.
My question is how heavy a Travel Trailer can I pull? I checked the Owners Manual and it has different listings than what the window sticker shows. The salesman at the RV store wasn't sure but told me what he thought but I want to be sure. The last thing I need is to break down or void any warranties.

Thanks in advance

not sure why the window sticker would have something different than the manual.

probably is like 6200# but what do you have a crew cab or single cab or?

Manual is general capacities. Window sticker specific to truck as it’s optioned out. Door sticker is best as already noted. As noted in many posts, 1500’s run out of payload capacity before anything else. Payload is weight of driver, all passengers, cargo and hitch weight.
