There is a big difference between an old Trailblazer and the new Tundra or Nissan.... whether you think it or not....
thanks...
Its an American thing. Not a 3/4 or 1 ton thing. The only frame difference is the wheel base between the 2.

Ok, Mustang here's the can of worms... Neither is made in America, both are assembled in America, Yes I would have to say more of the American assembled cars,turck, and SUV money probably stays in the US but I would love to see those numbers...

Not much made in the US anymore.. DAM SHAME TOO>>>>>

People, let's keep in mind the topic of this thread, which is whether a Trailblazer will safely tow a Sovereign, not whose trucks are built in America.

No it is probably not safe to tow it with a Trailblazer, I think we have come to that conclusion...

There are no trucks BUILT in America just ASSEMBLED ....

I was told by a buddy who is more patriotic then I, When purchseing a Truck. Alwasy look for the first number of the VIN to be 1

1 American

2 canada

3 mexico

I am not sure if it applies to Fords or Mopars but He says it does apply to chevy.

Yes I have to agree with purman about this thread topic. But if you must tow it, make sure you have brekes and dont go fast. Plan ahead for stops.

That is for all vehicles, not just trucks, and not just GM.
Add to that,
W= Germany
J= Japan
K= Korea

Aircooled,

First, welcome to the forum. Now to your question....can a Trailblazer pull a 31' Sirstream? My thoughts are, it probably can....would I do it? No. Good luck with your new Airstream.

I think it's to much trailer for your trailblazer, HOWEVER, The trailblazer will tow it around my block which is 1 mile around, the question is, do I want to tow it 250 times around the block? The white knuckles, the dirty shorts, go for the pick-up. Good luck and keep us informed
