Hello Airstream Fans!
This is my very first post (and very first forum of any kind, be gentle with me) and I would like some opinions if I may.
I have recently purchased a 2005 1/2 ton Chevy Suburban Z71 4x4 with a 5.3 engine. I have plans of purchasing an Airstream so my wife and I can " go see stuff" and I have many questions. First, what is my towing capacity? I looked up the parts code in the glove box and I have the 3:42 rear end. I also have the towing package which includes the transmission cooler. (I think it's either 7000 or 7400 lbs). I would like to stay under weight as much as I can. I understand that being close to capacity is very bad. Am I wrong? Once I find out what my towing capacity is, I can start looking at my options for trailers. Is there anyone else here who has this tow vehicle and if so, what are you towing with it and how does it handle? P.S. I'll probably be looking for a trailer that's a few years old with a queen bed in it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. (Trying to research and learn)
