Can a Chezy Avalanche tow a trailer?

So I'm about to pick up a Logan trailer I bought. Just wondering if my Chevy Avalanche can pull it. The trailer is a two slant with a dressing room. The trailer is a 2000, the truck is a 2006. Thanks

It will tell you in the manual the towing capacity. You would also have to add the weight of the horses.

Not sure about the tonnage on those. My 3/4 ton will tow it fine. How far do you have to go??

Well the drive to get it home is a little over an hour. It'll be empty of course.

Well, it should say on the registration.....but maybe take it to a truck scale at a truck stop? That way you can be sure. I will tell you I towed with mine, but I also always make sure I get the optional "towing package" when I buy a vehicle. THat upgrades the tranny, etc. I didn't do it much and only one draft cross, all my crap in a 2h steel extra tall, extra wide extra long with a small tack/dressing area. But-that was 4 vehicles ago........

Does it have a number behind the type of chevy it is? Like 1500 or 2500?? 1500 is Half ton but I really think you would be ok with even a half ton.

It should say on the trailer how much it weighs.
If you have a 1/2 ton, it will pull it just fine.

Its just the half ton model. Sounds like it should be fine though. I'll tell you guys if my truck explodes on the way home. Thanks!
