I see posts on vintage and newer Suburbans, but very little on the in between years. I don't think a 1978 qualifies as vintage, but I'm considering a older 'Burb for my 1960
TW. This 1978 'Burb
in particular on Craigslist. From my brief research (Wikipedia
) I see the 1973 - 1991 years represent the "third generation C/K" models. I would love to hear from any forum members familiar with these models and hear any thoughts on performance, durability, and potential problems. And would you tow cross-country with your older 'Burbs? I want freedom from elevation limits on where I could go.
I've talked to the owner and believe this one is well-maintained, miles are original. It's towed nothing bigger than a 16 foot ski boat. My TW would max at 4100 with a BIG load, but I don't know the specifics on towing capacity or GCVW for these. I think he's asking to much for it, but he is open to offers. I'm looking in person tomorrow.
