2019 Chevy Silverado flat tow

Does anyone tow a Chevy Silverado or other 1/2 size pick up with their Class C motorhome. Just looking for some input, thanks

No doubt there are people that do it.

But a lot of class Cs, probably most, really aren't up to the task. You need to look up the specs of your specific motorhome to make sure. You don't want to go over the motorhome's gcwr. Also, there's a decent chance your hitch rating is 5000 lbs, maybe lower. An unloaded 1500 crew cab probably weighs close to that.

The hitch is rated for 8000#, Ford E450 with a V10.

Have towed 3 different Silverado pick-ups over the years, but not with a Class C. Sounds like a E450 could handle it. Unless you go the drive train disconnect route, the Silverado needs to be 4-wheel drive with a true neutral position in the x-fer case. Modestly more complicated to put the newer trucks in tow mode and you do have to pull the battery cable.

Thanks, it does have the 2 speed transfer case that allows neutral.
