Towing with a Trailblazer

Has anyone towed over 6500 lbs with a Trailblazer with the six cylinder?

I have a spare truck which is the Trailblazer and I am pretty sure I can pull it in a pinch for short run.

Just checking if anyone has or if there are any horror stories before I try.

thought I would try a test run around the storage facility.

I had a 2002 Trailblazer, loved the truck, tried it with a 24 ft coachmen. Rear springs were too soft, car like & sway was a problem. Pulling was no problem controlling the RV was. If you beefed up the suspension with air bags, HD shocks maybe, but I wouldn't go to that trouble & still have too many limitations.

Pulled 6k about 2 miles with our buick rainier. It has the v8 and factory air bags. Wouldn't do it further than that.

If you are careful and stay very local, you could do it, but I wouldn't recommend.

Keep in mind, you are at great physical risk as well as financial risk because insurance will likely look at this very closely before covering anything.

Although it really is no indication of how it will tow I follow the 7100 lb limit when using a wdh. its stamped on the tag on the hitch.

I of course already have a truck to tow but if I can go between home and the storage without pulling out the gas eater I would like to do that.

Ill give it a try this weekend and see what happens.

If you can stay on 45 - 50 mph back roads you can do it in a pinch.
