I HAVE A 2006 GMCCREWCAB4 WHEELE PICK UP 5.3 MOTOR VORTEX ENGINE V8.HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN I PULL WITH A RV TRAILER


There should be a plate, usually in the driver's door frame, that states your gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), maximum tow weight, and gross combined weight rating (GCWR). Your truck can probably pull more than this, but it won't do it safely (brakes, suspension, frame load, etc.)

Tow ball weight for 1998 105R SERIES LANDCRUISER toyota


most tow bar specifications state 300-400 kgs is the maximum weight allowed ( best if the toyota is a long wheel base )
if you have something heavy on the bar you should be using load lever stabilizer bars from the bar to the "A" frame of the towed unit
these effectively reduce the weight on the ball by transferring the load to the vans wheels and the toyota front wheels
they reduce sway from uneven roads and passing trucks, improve driving stability on the toyota and reduce the load on the toyota drive tires
you measure the tow ball weight by lifting on the ball coupling of the van
best talk with bar specialist fitting shops and retailers that sell van accessories
don't forget you are legally limited by the weight you can tow by the vehicle towing specifications and for most late vehicle that tops out at 3000kgs --early vehicles it is less than 2000kgs

What is the towing capacity of a 99 k1500 suburban


All of that info is either inside the drivers side door on in the owner's manual shown as GVW...Gross Vehicular Weight...the combined weight of the Suburban and whatever you are towing. This sounds simple, but do NOT EVER exceed the GVW for your vehicle...it COULD cost you your life. IF for any reason you can not find or understand what you find on the driver's door, call your local Chevy dealer!! They WILL know!!!

Trying to figure out how much weight i can pull with our burb. the door stick is worn off and the manual gives two different options depending on the gear ratio i bought the burb used so not sure what the...


The weight of the trailer is the most important factor. A good weight-to-horsepower ratio is about 35:1, 35 lbs. of Gross Combined Weight (GCW) for every horsepower your engine develops. Multiply the engine's rated horsepower by 35 and subtract the weight of the vehicle passengers and luggage. The number remaining is the approximate ideal maximum weight you should tow, although a numerically higher axle ratio can help compensate for heavier weight.

Hope this help (remember rated this).

Towing capacity for an Isuzu I370 pickup


As listed in the owners manual.

Weight of the Trailer
How heavy can a trailer safely be?
It depends on how you plan to use your rig. For
example, speed, altitude, road grades, outside
temperature and how much your vehicle is used to
pull a trailer are all important. It can also depend
on any special equipment that you have on
your vehicle, and the amount of tongue weight the
vehicle can carry. See “Weight of the Trailer
Tongue” later in this section for more information.
Maximum trailer weight is calculated assuming
only the driver is in the tow vehicle and it has all
the required trailering equipment. The weight
of additional optional equipment, passengers and
cargo in the tow vehicle must be subtracted
from the maximum trailer weight.
The following charts show how much your trailer
can weigh, based upon your vehicle model
and options.
2WD Extended Cab Axle Ratio Maximum Trailer Weight GCWR*
Automatic Transmission,
2.9 L Engine 3.73 3,100 lbs (1 406 kg) 7,000 lbs (3 175 kg)
Manual Transmission,
2.9L Engine 3.73 2,100 lbs (952 kg) 6,000 lbs (2 721 kg)
4WD Crew Cab Axle Ratio Maximum Trailer Weight GCWR*
Automatic Transmission,
3.7L Engine 3.73 4,000 lbs (1 814 kg) 9,000 lbs (4 082 kg)
*The Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) is the total allowable weight of the completely loaded
vehicle and trailer including any passengers, cargo, equipment and conversions. The GCWR for your
vehicle should not be exceeded.
