Rides like a dream. Car will tow 6000lbs the way it's set up right now. Has only 78k miles. LT-1 engine 290HP 320torq. tow package.

I'm looking at buying a 23 or 25' Flying Cloud FB. I have a 2008 Chevy Avalanche LTZ. Is this tow vehicle sufficient for this type A/S.

I suffered a L4-L5, L5-S1 injury and at times walk like a question mark. I find that Lumbar support is very important and heated seats help a lot. My TV is a Jeep Commander Sport, it is rated at 6500lbs. It does not have the heated seats but the lumbar is adjustable. I just finished a trip from central Texas to Silverton Colorado and back in a week. Longest day was 700 miles driving and no back problems..

I confess to never having the opportunity to drive a Jeep, of any kind.

I have this preconceived idea though that they have a rough bouncy ride. It looks like some of the newer models are more refined with a pleasant ride. Hope I get a chance of driving one some day.

Welcome to the forum, Roslyn. Your Avalanche should be capable of towing either trailer if it is equipped with the towing package. If it is not, I would suggest the 25' is too much.

The towing package includes a lower rear end gear ratio, transmission cooler, wiring for the trailer and brake controller, and usually a heavy duty suspension.

I currently tow an '01 25' with an '07 GMC 1/2 ton pickup, and I wouldn't want to tow anything bigger with it.

Only four teenagers, two corsages, and a bottle of champagne. Should work.
