312BHOK with 3/4 Ton Gasser

Does anyone tow one of these with a 3/4 ton gasser? Just curious how it does. I have a 2016 Chevy 2500HD with 6.0L. It falls within all the specs but she's a big RV

I had a 2014 6.0 and pulled a 28’ travel trailer with it. Not sure if you’ve got the 4.10 gearing or the 3.73. I had the 3.73 and it was not fun. Really high RPM’s and tremendous fuel use towing in wind or climbing hills. If you’ve got the 4.10 gearing it’ll be better but not sure how much. You could always try it. It won’t be unsafe or anything.

My son has a 2017 2500 6.0, 3.73 and pulls a 6500lb 29' TT. We're in the PNW so flats, hills and mtns. He does fine until he gets top some steeper hills and then it screams. In the mtns he works it pretty hard to maintain the speed limit. It likes to rev like any gasser so it's not working hard per say it's just screaming to do it's job.

I tow a TT at around 9600 lbs loaded with a 19 ram 3500 CTD. Now way would I want his truck and my TT.

For me it would be a solid no.

I have a 2021 Chevy 2500 6.6 gas and I pull the eagle ht 284bhok. Tows it no problem. It is slightly smaller than what you have but have had no problem with hills or when needing to pass someone. I also have the equalizer weight distribution hitch.
