Ours too is an '11. It's the GMC Sierra 4x4 Extended Cab 4x4. It weighs right at, 5300 lbs. based on certified scales near where we lived at the time. We don't have to do anything special when prepping for towing. In fact, the key can be completely removed, if we like.
But, as I understand it, the '13s have had some changes in prep ops for towing. They require the negative battery cable to be removed. I'm not a fan of that but, we don't have one anyways so, it's not up to me. But, if I was getting ready to purchase or tow a '13 or newer, the first thing I'd do is, climb all over this net or, go to the nearest GM dealer and, look up the owners manual and read JUST EXACTLY WHAT IT STATES about flat towing behind a motor home.
Those instructions are the bible of towing, any particular toad. Good luck.
