Crazylev,

Got the underpowered (for my AS) 5.3L in a Suburban with a 28W -- we manage OK hereabouts. If you are in a hurry (>60MPH), it is not the thang for you...

My stepson has the same thing (5.3L) in a Tahoe, and I could (next time he is in town) hitch it up and see what it is like towing the 28W. Not sure if he will be back soon, though. I remember a line from that classic movie "I am not sure if I was pulling it, or it was pushing me." The Suburban handles the uneven pavement, crosswinds, and close quarters with 18-wheelers in constructions zones without too many scary moments. Overinflating the rear tires a bit has help reduce sway to nearly zero, when it was pretty small before...

Is there anything from the 70's that you can put a modern engine and tranny into that could meet your requirements?

A Durango is an excellent vechile. My 02 pulled our old 28' International and can pull our new 34' Limited. Another suggestion, not quite practical for parking in the city but an excellent truck is the RAM 1500 Mega Cab w/ Hemi. Very practical for towing when taking the entire family- tonnes of room and very comfortable.

What kind of engine do you have in the Durango and what do you get for mileage pulling the 28' vs. the 34?
