IMHO, you might as well tow something that's comfortable to ride in : )

Wow, only 3800lbs. GM must of went on a diet. I would of figured 4500-4800lbs. The Jeep JK weighs in at a hefty 4300 plus liquids and it's about as spartan as you can get on the inside.
You should really enjoy the new toad. Decided on a tow system yet? Take a look at the Ready Brute / Ready brake set up. I use it as do many others here with great success.
Cheers

Have you actually weighed it? I'd be surprised if it came in under 4,200 lb.

Curious too about what brake system you are going to use.
Some of the newer cars are a pain to install braking systems into.

GMC's website says 3800 curb, which is dry. 4860 something gross. That's fully loaded with fuel, cargo and people. I'd guess on the ground being towed at 4200-4300lbs

I have decided to go with the falcon all terrain tow bar and the roadmaster invisbrake.

Are you going to install the braking system yourself?

No, Campingworld is. Let me say this before everyone jumps on me for using camping world, lol they have been great to me and have gone above and beyond what should be expected of them on both my purchases of rigs, and service. I know a lot of people are upset with them about that whole hunting thing, but that was a CEO 's action and the local people here had nothing to do with it. So until they give me personally a reason not to use them I will continue. Just saying. ( smiley face)

I've always had good luck with Camping World and hope you do too.

They can't all bad or they wouldn't still be in business.
