Welcome from Washington. Please take it easy and get used to that rig. My trailer is about that size. I have a new 1500 and it's really not enough truck for that. It's fine power wise with the 6.2. It's not heavy enough or suspended enough to be really stable. I pulled it to Utah with it once and will use my old Duramax from now on for anything farther than Portland. I'm glad I kept the old truck now. And I have been a truck driver for over 40 years. With that experience I don't feel like I want to deal with it in wind. It will do the job. But you need to learn it's limits and stay below them. Slow way down if it's windy or in curves. And allow plenty of stopping distance incase the trailer brakes fail. Keep yourself and your family safe. The speed limit in Idaho and Utah is 80. The 1500 was not stable at anything over 65 or 70. The old Duramax is fine at 80. Very different trucks. Which surprised me a little since the 1500 is slightly longer than the Duramax and only 900 pounds lighter. I expected it to be better. I really kept the old truck for other trailers I have the 1500 can't pull. If the 1500 was my only truck it would work I would just go slower. Click image for larger version
