Depending on the gear ratio of your vehicle you have a max capacity of 8,500 or 9,500lbs. Your ideal trailer weight for this vehicle I would say is between 5,000 and 8000lbs. For more info on towing Click here.

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.)

Towing camper trailer was told by mechanics not to take it out of 5th gear and towe around 100km/hr is the correct .


the towing procedures will, be in the user manual
depending on the trailer weight( less than 1 ton) it is permissible to tow in over drive and for a trailer without load levelling ( stabilizer bars ) 100 klms would be an ideal speed
5th gear is a direct drive gear ( input and output shaft connected as one) and the idea of staying in 5th gear reduces the load on the gears and bearings

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).

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.

Towing capacity


While a Grand Prix isn't really designed to tow,the capacity of the car would be 4 adults and luggage.In my estimation,that would equate to roughly 1000 pounds that the car can comfortably haul around.Now,you do have to realize that this is going to be ******* the transmission especially,and the engine secondly.Definitely install an auxiliary transmission cooler to help dissipate the heat from the trans fluid.A close look at the rear suspension and possibly any upgrades there will help out with the tongue weight that a trailer creates.Check and see how much the trailer actually weighs before proceeding.Unlike cars of 30 years ago,that were outfitted with V8,rear wheel drive, truck engines and transmissions,today's cars really aren't the ideal choice to tow with,as a front wheel drive transaxle is pretty light duty.Towing a lawnmower and small trailer,or a jet ski,no problem.A camper trailer would need to be really light,and the other issue might be brakes.Check your brakes really well on your car,as they will also be stopping the weight of whatever you're towing.Good luck.
