Help for a rookie RV'r figure out max weight
Hi guys, new here.
I have a 2009 Yukon, 5.3, tow haul package.
This is what I've figured out on my car:
GVWR 7100 lbs
GCWR 14,000 lbs
Maximum trailer weight 8,400 lbs.
Rear axle 4100 lbs
Front 3200 lbs
Gross Vehicle Weight 5262
We were thinking of getting about a 28-30' trailer around 6,000 dry weight trailer.
I've tried an online calculator but it wasn't working right.
What is a safe weight of a trailer I could pull? The Jayco dealer told me 8400 lbs, and I called the Yukon dealer service guy and he said I should be safe with up to 10,000 lbs but that sounded insane.
What do you suggest?
