Coldfusion there is a huge weight difference you're right! But with a tongue weight listed at 510, add propane batteries and hitch that sure doesn't leave you with much room for anything else. If you want to stay under GVWR.

You guys are beyond helpful. We are SO grateful. While looking for the Siverado 2500HD we also came across the Suburban 2500 and the Yukon 2500 HD. We have been reading up and these seem pretty powerful. To be perfectly honest though, we don't know much about SUVs and thought they'd never be able to do the job. So silly question- does the 2500 HD mean they are the equivalent to the Silverado 2500 or are they more like the 1500 after taking everything into consideration? Or should we stay away from These SUVs all together? Thank you again!!

To my understanding a 2500 HD is the same as the 2500 truck, it's on the same classic, but I'm not sure the payload might be different, maybe someone who have a 2500 suv will chime in.

You will have a tough time finding a 2500 Burb or Tahoe. Not made anymore and just don't seem to be many used for sale. The Ford Excursion is a bit easier to find. They were manufactured from 2000-2001. Equivalent to the F250 and 2500's. It's a 3/4 ton and it's a beast! 1500-1950# payload depending. Diesel and 4x4 take away some payload.

To add, if you are interested in the Excursion head over to the FTE forum. Many owners mod them with heavier duty springs if needed for more payload as those are the limiting factor.

I must be missing something... with a payload of 1795# on my Silverado, how is it even close?!?

That's the posted payload from factory? Have you ever taken your truck to the scales?
