    But you haven't pulled your Laredo 303tg, have you? I thought the 303tg was significantly heavier than your previous camper? I'm REALLY interested to see how well a Suburban 1500 is going to pull a 9000 pound camper. Then again, Keystone lists the camper weighing in at 7377 pounds. I'm also hoping you like your new camper.

    You're right, I haven't pulled the 303tg yet, the dry weight of my 29bhs was 6300lbs and my 303tg is 7400lbs.
    I don't plan on packing my whole house into my 303tg, like I did my 29bhs, so I can compensate for the difference in weight, in all honesty I really packed in the extras this last trip including, 14 CASES of spring water, ( 210kgs / 462 lbs ) so I've already cut nearly half of the excess 1100lbs of extra weight. Deduct from that another few pounds for my old barbecue and charcoal ( don't need them any more with my new outdoor kitchen! ) I'm still working out stuff that I don't need with me so I can keep it light when I travel. I asked the dealer to delay delivery on our new 303tg so I could get a couple of things done around the house, but the minute I get delivery, I'm heading to the scales to check out the real difference in weight between the two, I'll keep you posted! In all honesty, I'm kinda glad I had troubles with my 29bhs, it gave me the push I needed to go for the 303tg, I can't wait for next years vacation!

    Remember this point n towing a trailer, your vehicle’s towing capacity is the maximum amount of weight it can pull without damaging your car. Towing too much weight can make it harder to stop your car or avoid road obstacles.

    okay, so I know its been 4 years since the original post, but fill me in. I have the exact suburban and want to know how much I can tow. how did your suburban tow the 303? have you had any troubles with in in the past 4 years or have you upgraded since then.
