An SUV fits our current needs better than a PU truck so that is why I was looking at a Tahoe, plus I would be getting rid of the wifes Envoy that she likes so I have to keep her happy.
Took the Envoy and X213 to the CAT scales with just me in the truck and a camper without food,cloths and bikes. Here are the results:
Steer Axle 2640 (Envoy max 2950)
Drive Axle 2840 (Envoy max 3200)
Trailer Axle 4040
Gross Weight 9520
This was with the weight distributing hitch engaged.
The GCWR of the Envoy is 10000 so I am 480 lbs from max without the family or supplies
It tows and stops fine (not sure about a panic stop)but those numbers are not good.
Looked at the on-line Tahoe manual as suggested above and it calls out 6400 lbs max trailer weight for the standard 3.08 ratio so that will work, I just have to crunch the other numbers. I have no plans to upgrade to a larger trailer any time soon. A PU truck is not completely out of the question, I just have to convince the wife to drive one as her daily driver
I drive to far to work every day to live with the poor gas mileage.
