I also want to bring my golf cart around. For THAT I will need a 250/350. But short of that a 1/2 ton and many SUVs are perfectly SAFE and fine, even up the Ike Gauntlet.

I know a lot of people drive big trucks daily. Good for them. I can't. My condo won't allow it. So I pull with a SUV and like happily in my condo. Best of both worlds.

What does your door label indicate for max payload for the Escalade?

If I go by axle ratings I should be able to load 1796 lbs. If I go by the gross vehicle weight rating I should be able to carry 1466 lbs. But my door label says do not exceed 1014 lbs.
