RE: GM 6.2L 420hp and 10-speed

I don't have one, but my engineering hat thinks you'll see more than slight improvement with 15% more power and 4 more gears!

RE: Pulling Travel Trailer in Colorado with Tahoe

You'll be slow, maybe 30mph in first or second gear. But that 5.3L will do it without complaints. YOu may want a larger than stock transmission cooler. Flush all your fluids (oil, coolant, trans) and enjoy the views.

RE: No 3/4 ton trucks.

Coronavirus shut down plants this Spring for 3 months, plus supply chain of parts shut down the same or more in some regions. Plants were under 75% capacity before MY21 changeovers. As Dad said, the plants are trying to catch up, but it will take a while. This is not just a GM HD truck situation.

RE: looking for music app alternative to google play

Spotify allows the user to import "local files" into its library and playlists. You can log into a Spotify account across many platforms (iOS, Android, Windows, MacOs).

RE: Maximum towing

The general feedback for people towing over 8000 pounds loaded with half tons is not positive. How much is your as equipped payload and receiver rating? 8000 pounds loaded means 1000-1200 pounds of tongue weight. How much stuff/people do you put in the vehicle when towing? That Tire and Loading sticker will likely be your limit well under 11,000 pounds for a TT.

RE: favorite tow vehicle for small trailer??

Subaru Ascent with turbocharged 2.4L should do well, especially at higher elevations.

RE: Trailer Backup Camera & Tow Mirrors

Wider would be better, but I think you'll be fine with those CIPA for the trip home. That should give you plenty of experience to judge if you want something even wider.

RE: Pretty Sure Dual Cam Shouldn't Look Like This!

I had something similar happen to only one side. I just bought replacement dual cam parts so I have one spare now. It is worth contacting Reese as well to help understand how that could happen.

Check the fine print on towing for those vehicles. Some of them have frontal area restrictions. A hybrid or full sized TT at 4000pounds dry and 4500-4800 pounds loaded with a family's gear will not likely be pleasant for a vehicle with only 5000 pound tow rating. Full sized vans are very good values, especially used, compared to the SUVs you listed.

RE: How to tow travel trailer with 2 adults, 3 kids, and 2 dogs

Chevrolet Express or GMC Savana 3500 6.0L/6-spd. Any 2011+ will do great up to 7k dry. Plenty of space inside to spread kids out and dogs. Nissan NV3500 is another solid choice, again, up to 7k dry TT.

RE: Got camper inspected at camping world. Big mistake

I generally recommend avoiding CW (for any sales, parts, or service).

RE: LR E tow vehicle tire comparison

Michelin Defender LTX M/S. Have these now after the prior model LTX M/S2 tires. Quiet, great grip in rain and snow, and I expect at least 60k miles.

RE: New and confused

That TT is about 500 pounds pounds dry. That will be close to 6500 pounds loaded with 800-900 pounds of TW. With 3 young children, I think most modern half tons SUVs should be good it. They seem to come in around 1600 pounds of payload which is you likely practically limit. As much as I love my Suburban, you will appreciate the extra power of Ford's Ecoboost in the Expedition, especially at higher altitudes.

RE: 2003 Ford F150 4x4 Towing

I towed my current TT which is similar weight to yours with a 2003 F150 4WD 3.73 Supercrew. Handling was great, power was ok. Practically you have 2 gears for accelerating and 1 for cruising. You will spend a lot of time between 3000-5000rpm on hills and accelerating, but it will pull it fine. Flush all your fluids. Get some towing mirrors, a proportional brake controller, and a WDH.

RE: Trailer Backup Camera & Tow Mirrors

I recommend any of the cameras you are willing to pay for or afford. I highly recommend some form of extended towing mirrors. These aftermarket mirrors should be good, but there are less expensive options that mount existing mirrors. I have the Grand Aero 3 which work well.

Icseds, what about your towing experience does not meet your expectations?

RE: Accident with tow vehicle right before big camping trip?

That close to a significant trip: Rent a 1-ton van out of pocket and try to claim it with insurance later. Enjoy the moment.

RE: Directv what do you miss?

I dropped DirectTv 10 years go for cable (at home). 4 Years ago I dropped CAble TV for internet only and streaming devices. What do I miss? Nothing. I save hundreds per year. Our family enjoys a lot more non-screen time, especially away from our home.

RE: Wifi in Remote locations

#offthegrid Our family uses Verizon Cell/data hotpot data as needed. When we travel to areas we know does not have good cell service, we download or spend time without electronics. :D

RE: Ford F150 STX V6

The 2.7L Ecoboost with 10-spd transmission will be significantly better towing experience than your 2006 5.4L/40spd. You'll spend far more time under 3000rpm, both accelerating and crusing.
