Towed good. We have a Reese weight distribution. They moved over the single friction anti sway from our trade in setup and I think it might not be enough. Did not encounter any serious sway but still felt 18 wheelers go by with slight sway. I might upgraded to the Reese dual cam..

Picking up a 33 RLDS to deliver to Winnipeg next week. I also agree with the others here you are in 3/4 ton diesel category to make towing a much less stressful situation. And i'll repeat what I've read before, no such thing as to much truck lol!!!

The big block in my 3/4 Avalanche is the same engine in the biggest Uhaul truck they rent that hauled our whole house worth of crap and pulled my Olds behind it. I think it can handle the 33 RLDS just fine. Since they dont make them anymore my next truck will probably be a diesel but with only 28K on the big block it wont be soon..

The 3/4 Avalanche was a great idea. I sure wish they still made them. Reminds me of the 1210 International Travelette trucks of the '70's.

Agreed. Diesel not necessary just nice to have. What type of mileage do you get towing this with your Avalanche? By the way that is a really nice trailer, delivered it yesterday and had the dealer put the slides out and wow! it's like a dance hall in there!

Re: What are you towing your 33RLDS with?

I towed 2400 kms last year with my 2011 f150 supercrew ecoboost. I adjusted all my weights according to a cat scale and it pulls it with ease. It has more engine then suspension so as long as u adjust where your weight is it is no problem. Most if my towing is on the flat ground but averaging 16 liters per 100 kms while towing. Cheers

So after a few trips in the books fully loaded we have been getting 7 MPG. Thank goodness we have a lot of places to camp nearby in CNY !!
