I'm in the green mtn state and looking at buying a used 2002 Tahoe v8 5.3L that has 120, miles. It has all the bells and even more bells. We are looking at this because I need a bigger vehicle for towing a camper. I want to be able to use the hoe and camper to travel out west. WHAT would you suggest about this truck /suv for this type of trip? I have a Ford Explorer Sport trac 4x4 v6 4.0 automatic. rated at pulling 5500 and the CAMPER is 3500. The yoke on the drive shaft towards the rear end needs replacing and the cover on the rear end needs a new gasket. Front end is good needs breaks rotor and pad's x 4 wheels. Transmission goes in smoothly (automatic) ac needs check that is being tested later today. Brake lines need to be done within time all rust covered. No leaks! What else would you suggest to test? Any views on getting this hoe for towing a camper cross country? Is this a good towing vehicle? Thanks for reading and for the help.
