I now see your other thread on towing with a Yukon. We decided to replace our Yukon (the short wheel base version) with a truck when we acquired our 2004 28' classic. It is a heavy trailer, and when we ran the numbers, we decided that the SUV with the 4 bucket seats and AWD system (which added lots of weight to the car) didn't have enough load capacity left for the trailer, us, our big dog and my purse ( it isn't small)! I sure loved that car ...hated to make the switch. Nice to not worry about towing capacity though.

Well, i am originally from Oklahoma (we Okies are known for wanting to take along all of our stuff), and the men in my family were all boy scouts, so I tend to travel "prepared"! Seriously though, we found that the rating on our Yukon in terms of weight on the axles etc. left very little room for trailer tongue weight, people and a fairly basic load in the car. It was close enough that I honestly did try to think through how much weight my purse added. We were tired of running the numbers and worrying, We may have overdone it going to a 3/4 ton diesel Denali truck, but we wont worry when we go to Colorado either.

That trailer is similar to mine except:
1. My Corian counters and wallpaper are beige.
2. I already have yellow/tan (almond?) Ultra leather.
3. My trailer has vinyl plank floor covering.
4. My television is on the wall by the refrigerator.
5. The wall paper border in the bathroom has been changed to an aluminum back splash.
6. No mirrored panels in my trailer.
7. I have not upgraded to LED's.
8. I have not upgraded to 16' wheels and tires.
9. I do not have a ProPride

Angustami,

May be picking up an 05 similar to yours but with midnight counter tops. How has it gone since you purchased it? How has the Proride worked out?
