SUPER re: '12 GMC 2500HD. One other thing I did to my 2500HD was REPLACE the stock fuel tank with a 45g tank (~$1,000 + install). It's WELL WORTH the money. You'll find that you'll probably get about 12mpg pulling the rig, and the 20g stock tank doesn't get you very far! Of course, I'm running at higher altitudes where fuel economy isn't that great to begin with!
I hear you re: 2500HD being rated at 15,600#; however, you'll bounce! I've even upgrade my shocks. The bounce is by NO MEANS "out of control", it's more of an annoyance.
The GM HD's were upgraded significantly for 2011. Boxed frame, bigger brakes, engine brake, 36 Gallon tank, trailer sway control, etc. etc.
These trucks are expensive, so I need to save a few bucks first.
Looks like we are both learning a lot about our trailers here.
