not completely new, but...

We just purchased a Trail-lite crossover 189QB. We’re looking now for a perfect SUV to pull our trailer.
We considering a Tahoe or Yukon, 5.3lt.

Dianne and I, we both are RV- beginners. We use to camping way up in the North Georgia and North Carolina Mountains with a back pack, compass and a tent.
Past 60, things are changing…

At the moment , we have time for learning and being prepared for our new hobby!

Y’ALL take care – have a great Sunday – Walter and Dianne.

That ground gets mighty hard as we get older, I blame it on the ground. Good luck with your search.

I like the Tahoe/Yukon's. I'm a life long GM fan. I don't know how much your trailer weighs. If it's close to the rated towing of the Tahoe you might want to look for a Denali edition with the 6.0 motor? That 6.0 is a very strong motor. I've got a GMC Savana 3500 conversion van with it. My van weighs 7k lbs. I wouldn't want the 5.3 with this much weight. I think you also get a better transmission with the 6.0, and heavier duty brakes and springs. Your mileage is going to be very bad with the 6.0 tho. I get 12 with my van.

Welcome to the camper world. It's the greatest for us.
MN is home for now.
