29TRX

I am strongly considering the purchase of a 29TRX.

I will be using a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500hd with the 6.6L Duramax, and heavy duty tow package - (will accept 2-1/2" shank).

What brand of WDH would you recommend?

Will I have any issues pulling this big of a trailer with my truck?



Thank you for your input.

I use a 1400# Equal-i-zer with a 2.5" shank. It works well. The 2.5" shank was purchased later and is made by Curt.

It is heavy.

That will be a great TT. But loaded 13K and 35 feet, WOW. All off the rear. I would get the best WD hitch with sway control I could find. Definitely 1400 pound bars or better. Perhaps call a few places like E trailer and some hitch place mfg like Blu-ox. Set it up right the first time and enjoy with no worries. Welcome to the ORV group.

Thank you for your input.
Did you end up buying the trailer? Iím wondering some of the same questions as you and wanted to see if youíve towed it yet.

Would suggest ProPride 3P, if the tongue weight will be below 1400lbs. Next would be Blue OX, have used both. My 1500lb Blue Ox is for sale, have both 2.0 and 2.5 inch shanks.
