RE: New to Towing what is safe to tow with 2012 Tahoe

I recently owned a 18, suburban with tow package and all etc. Do you have the air ride leveling suspension? But from what you posted, i would see 0 problem with your towing. A sway control hitch is always a plus to have, and i personally went for a shorter trailer in height(10ft 11in) over some of the taller ones that i seen such as 12 or 13 to have better control.

RE: Can we pull a TT with our ‘20 Suburban

I was an owner to a 2018 premier chevy suburban. Tow package, rear air suspension and all. I towed a 34ft TT, 6,800lbs loaded I'm sure tongue weight was around 800lbs loaded.(apex ultra light 300bhs) I have 4 kids plus my wife. I ended up getting rid of it. Having the primere is more capable then the Z71 I believe because of the auto leveling and such. The suburban pulled the trailer pretty good but when it comes to steeper grades the transmission would get hot. There are certain situations where it'll really get hot especially when reversing up a steep driveway. (When it tow haul mode, the battery guage would turn into the transmission temp) Knowing what I know, I would not go over 26ft total, and no more then 6k fully loaded that's pushing it. As for the Z71, you may have a 3.23 gear ratio instead of 3.42 with no auto leveling. When I towed, I made sure I put everything into the trailer over the axles, to keep my payload limits in order, which the suburban has a pretty good limit for being a 1/2 platform We also recently traded our 300bhs that had bunk beds for a 293rlds. We figured that you lose a lot of trailer for beds. Small bathroom size and little living room size. So we simply have a large living room area for more family time and we just make the beds from the couches and dinette.
