Our TV is a stock 1997 Tahoe LS 2-door and it does just fine all over Colorado ...
I also use a 97 Tahoe LT,but use a Ht383 crate motor and MONSTER brand racing transmission, to pull my 2007 Safari 23ft.Uphill is no problem,but long downhill runs heat up the brakes. I am changing to a 99 Silverado rear disc brake axle,instead of the drums.

Do not use a tahoe!

I went to a Chevy dealer in Washington state with my AS specs and they sold me a Tahoe. I really liked that vehicle until I bought my 98 Excella 30 and realized I had been misled by the car dealer. I took my loss right away and got a Ford Excursion. A few months later in Southern Utah a car illegally crossed the highway right in front of us forcing us across the oncoming traffic and sideways down an embankment missing a telephone pole by inches. There is no way the Tahoe could have made the maneuvering the Excursion managed. I and my passenger owe our lives to my decision to respect the specs. You do the same. 3/4 tonis minimum.
