It's a 1/2 ton which is more than enough for the 23 footer. I would suggest making sure it has at least a 3.42 gear ring in the back, 3.73s preferred and make sure it has a trans cooler. Other than that, I think it would make a great tow vehicle.
The RPO code for 3.73 gears is GT4 and 3.42 gears is GU6.... looking in the glove box area GM places a sticker with a bunch of codes...on that code list you will find one of these two codes on it and it will tell you what gears it had when it came from the factory....unless someone changed it after production.
As for the trans cooler, you can simply look in the grille and see if there is one.
