Greyhawk Advice please

I have order a 2017 MV29 Greyhawk which should be arriving anytime now according to my dealer. I have a question or two if some of you guys or gals can help me with or give your opinion.

Do any of you pull a GMC Canyon or Chevy Colorado with your geryhawk ordo you have any advice or opinions on such a setup? I have a 2015 Canyon that I have base plate and SMI braking installed on and jsut waiting on th MH.

Also I am thinking seriously about going ahead and ordering the 5 Star Tuning.. What is your opinion on this product?

Thanks a bunch for any opinions you can share with me.

Your 2017 Greyhawk has the 6 speed transmission. I don't think you will need the 5 star tuning. AFAIK the tuning is not yet available for the 2016's. You could also try the GH without the tune and see how it runs. If a 5 star tune is available for the 6 speed tranny's it might be a good investment. They have a great reputation.
I do not tow with my GH so I don't have experience with how the 6 speed works with a toad. It works great without a toad.

I have a 2016 GH 31ds with the 6 speed, and my toad weighs in at about 4000lbs. I haven't been on any big hills yet , but it pulls my toad just fine. Actually not much difference than when I am not dragging the toad. I put the trans in tow/haul mode and it works very well. Will even downshift more when slowing down to ease the work on the brakes. Trans shifts very smoothly and plenty of power.
