Silverado 2500HD 6.0/Seasonal
New to the forum here and have done a ton of reading.Wife and I are looking at Jayco fifth wheels, and I have some towing questions with a set of unique circumstances.
We have a seasonal site that is 45 miles from our home - we have done this for 6 years now and love the campground, and the surrounding area. I own a small business so this is convenient for us as we can throw the gear in the truck and head up when I see a window that is convenient for the business. It is really flat terrain. We only bring our RV home when a repair pops up that I can't handle myself. We have brought our current trailer home once in the last 3 years (we can leave the RV onsite during winter).
My current vehicle is a 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 6.0 with a 4.10 rear end. it is a 4 x 4 and has a standard bed. Manufacturer tow ratings for fifth wheel is 14,000 lbs. (I know to take that with a grain of salt)
The trailers we are looking at are the Jayco Eagle 291RSTS or the Jayco 321RSTS (UVW's 9685 and 10,075 respectively).
Just wondering if this would be doable - for short hauls. I never take it anywhere else - we see it as more as a cabin/cottage getaway. We have a full hookup site - so we never add water to the tanks and we are allowed outside storage boxes, so things like grills, chairs, etc. are stored in them.
Sorry about the long winded post - just trying to make sure before we leap in.
