Hi everyone :) I am getting a new horse trailer and I want to know if my truck would be able to pull it. I have a 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 6.6L V-8 diesel. The new trailer we are getting is a three horse trailer with a 10ft short wall and a full aluminum body. Would we have any trouble pulling this?
Sounds like it would probably be fine, but to be sure you need to check your truck's towing capacity, the trailer's weight, and if the trailer is a gooseneck, you should also check the truck's payload capacity.

I don't know what "short wall" means without looking it up. If this is a bumper pull, be sure to check the specs of the factory hitch, because the factory hitch was not rated for much on the 2006-2007 Classic. I didn't follow the later trucks.
I think you will be fine, I have a 2007 F250 Turbo Diesel V8 6.0 , I'm pulling a a new three horse trailer with a 8ft short wall and a full aluminum body.
We just came from a week trip in the mountains, and the truck had never problems with pulling our trailer.
You shouldn't have any problem pulling it with your truck. I also have a 06 F250 6.0 diesel and even fully loaded. I don't even know the trailer is back there.. it's a 3h with 8ft LQ. Enjoy your rig!!!
