    Have a 2003 Yukon XL, 1/2 ton 4WD, 5.3, 3.73 rear end with the heavy duty trailering package. Going to purchase a travel trailer. Will the Yukon XL pull a travel trailer with dry weight(shipping weight) of 7100 lbs, probably would be close to 7600 lbs. loaded with water, food, clothing.

    Look in your owners manual.My 97 burb 5.7 4x4 1/2 ton 5.7 with 3.73 is rated in the owners manual for 6000 pnds.Seems like 7600 would be high,but they possibly upped the tow capacity on the newer ones,not sure.
