You know, the Suburban sure has stood the test of time.

I have an 06 Suburban with the 8.1. By far my favorite vehicle I have ever had! Great purchase, congratulations!

I'm glad to see that you like yours! They no longer put the mighty 8.1 in the Suburban but the 6.0 seems to have enough power; I haven't towed yet so I'll update on the results of that later. The 6-speed makes up for the 3.73 gearing nicely.

Interesting idea. We get a lot of rain here in the PNW and the Airstream lives outside. Is your concern rain or something else?
