    Default What do you TOW with your Chevy Truck / SUV?

    We did this in the past, but now that we have a TOWING section on here (again) let's get a new list of the toys and trailers that you haul on a regular basis with your rig.

    I'm only guilty of towing a 6x8 utility trailer around town and to the dump from time to time. The wife and I are talking about getting a trailer this year (or next) so we can get out of the heat in the summer and head up to the mountains to do some camping.

    This is the best trailer I've ever owned.

    02 Chevy Trailblazer LS (110K+ miles - loaded except for 4WD - WRECKED!)
    99 Chevy Cavalier LS (105K+ miles - commuter car)
    78 Chevy Suburban Silverado (454, 3/4 ton)
    62 GMC 3/4 ton Pickup (350 police interceptor)

    Wow, this thread seems to have attracted a lot of non-member attention... I'm the only member viewing it along with 19 guests right now. Thats a good thing for bringing traffic to the club.

    Now, on to my towing. The only trailer I have is my 14ft. utility trailer. It's built pretty strong for a trailer that size though and can easily haul a small car. I brought my Spitfire home on it, and my friend borrowed it to move a Ford Tempo. It also gets used for hauling quads and landscaping stuff in the summer.



    With my F350 though, I expect it will end up on bobcat duty this summer once I'm back at work... but thats only because the bobcat is a bit heavy for the Avalanche...

    Default Just a little trailer with a little car...

    I tow an 18ft open trailer, drop axles, wood deck. About 2,000lbs. Then add the 02 Z06 at about 3,100lbs. Throw about 400lbs in the bed. Add driver and luggage and cooler up front. 6,500lbs not including driver.

    06 1500 w/Z71 3.5L. Upgraded Class IV trailer hitch, spring helpers.

    Tows just fine and averages 12-13mpg on the highway. Mostly flat land towing. Sometimes over mountains, it doesn't like that much, but does it. Like that trip to Watkins Glen.

    Also towed a 01 Merc Grand Marquis up from FL. That's about a 4,500lb car. Didn't do bad.

    2006 Chevy Silverado, 5.3L, Z71, Extended Cab. Tow Mule.
    2002 Chevy Corvette Z06, 5.7L, Slightly Modded. Tow Payload.
    2005 Craftsman Riding Mower, 17hp, light mods.

    I think my little trailer looks like a wimp now.
