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........

Empty? Should be fine. JMHO.

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.

IRaceBarrels 10-11-2012 07:05 PM

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!
