The 2012 and 2013 are the same chassis and almost the same vehicle, except I'd take the 400hp 6.2 all day long and twice on Sunday if the regular Yukon has the 5.3.
Either are capable and sized right for that weight.
Length is just a function of how good of a driver you are. 32' long trailer is a snap if you're comfortable towing and backing or a bit of a challenge negotiating some places if you're not.

You're totally within the limits of both of those vehicles though if you're really only 6klbs loaded.

Why do people think the length is too long? My TT is 32' without the rear rack extended and I tow with a same generation Suburban. People have been using GM SUVs to tow 38' TTs, although most are 3/4 tons.

My opinion is go for it. That sould be well under all your weight limits unless you have a football team's defensive line. Get a WDH with integrated sway control and learn how to adjust it. Flush all your fluids. Happy camping!

That trailer is so much longer than the SUV I would not do it. It's usually called the tail wagging the dog situation.


Wait, what?!?

How many trailers are on the road where they are much longer than the truck? Does that make them unsafe too?
