Towing with Colorado Dura Max

I tow a 2018 Dutchman Kodiak 279RBSL, loaded weighs about 7000 pounds about 30 feet long. I tow it with a 2018 Chevy Colorado Z71 4x4 quad cab Dura Max. I average 28 miles a gallon with daily use. I get about 11 towing. Iíve had this setup about 6 months and traveled about 5000 miles. I feel this truck and TT are the perfect match. The truck pulls the trailer very easily and Iíve had absolutely no issues. Does anyone else have a setup similar to this. What are your thoughts?

Go to CAT Scales and get weighed
Truck/trailer combo WITH WDH hooked up
Truck/trailer combo W/O WDH hooked up

Then drop trailer in parking lot then weigh truck only

$30 (or less) Total for the three weigh tickets
Then you will have REAL World numbers to compare to Trucks Ratings...especially Axle/Tire Load Ratings

Well worth the true numbers.
