Chevy Avalanche pulling trailer?

Getting ready to look at a vehicle to pull a aluminum (possibly a featherlite or eclipse) trailer. My husband looked at all the numbers and says this vehicle will pull 2 1,200 horses. Just curious if any of you actually have this setup and what you think? We do not have a trailer yet either so will be purchasing one very soon. Thanks! Patti

Not sure about the Avalanche. 2 horse Featherlite is 2500 lbs empty with max loaded weight of 7,000. With 2 1200 pound horses, you're already to 5,000 without added saddles, hay, etc. What is the total towing capacity of that vehicle?

We have an '02 avalanche with now 250k miles. 1/2 or 3/4 ton.. Pulled a super heavy trailer fully loaded across states and had zero problems. It's still going strong. Love that truck.
