Silverado as Toad?

I have a 2001 2500HD 4x4 Silverado. I want a toad, and the wife's Subaru is not towable. Does anyone have any experience towing one of these?

The RV is rated to tow 10,000, and the truck weighs a little over 6,000 empty.

I am not ready to purchase anything new right now, just would like to use what I have. Any thoughts or suggested equipment???

Thanks,

Dan

sure just get a blue ox avanti base plate and arms and wire the truck up and tow it. we towed our 2001 gmc sierra 1/2 ton 4x4 to alaska and never had a problam. we used a aux brake system for the truck and pulled it with a 05 gulfstream gas m/h and would do it again.....no problem.....i wired a light bar for the truck and hooked it to the m/h and away we went for three months.....good luck

With the GM 4x4 you can tow on all fours by putting the transfer case to neutral.
