RE: truck for towing.

So you are getting a bigger heavier TT. yet think that you will carry the same anount of stuff as you did with the smaller TT.... That does not compute. How does that not compute?? Selling old trailer... pots, pans, sheets, pillows, other items being moved over to new TT. yes i think i can carry the same items.. its a bigger trailer because weve grown out of it. As i see here most would say upgrade to 2500, 250s. due to everything

truck for towing.

Good Morning, Im buying a new camper this spring( 2021 season) It is 5800# dry travel trailer. My current one is 4000# dry with about 600# of stuff inside. so the new one would be about 64 to 6500# loaded. I currently have a 07 classic 1500 silverado with 168k miles on it. It tows the old one fine, we don't go more than 3 to 4 hrs away when we go out. With the new one being bigger( and kids are bored going to the same spots) we want to go further out, like states away. I was thinking new truck maybe in store. i talked to a couple of people and by could probably 15, and some say the new 1500s( medium duty) trucks will be fine, some say go HD. HD because the torque converter, tow capacity, built to tow things etc. Im not going diesel because i just want one, unless it a good price. I know my truck now can do 3800 to 7700# towing, but at 13 yrs old, I'm on OEM trans, new u joints( blew em in June on a trip) and new out put shaft and OEM motor. Im worried about power and longevity of my truck now. Am I wrong to think that? Are the nw medium dutys the way to go or are HDs the way to go?
