As I said in my other post regarding towing with a Suburban, we've got a 32QB, and tow with a 1 ton dually. Not a problem. But...
We also have a 4 horse gooseneck horse trailer that we need to tow as well, and it's looking like we'll need to tow BOTH trailers at the same time. We wanted to get a 3/4 ton Suburban. Chevy states that the 3/4 ton has a 9600 lb towing capacity.
My 32 QB supposedly has a tongue weight of 1002 pounds, according to Crossroads' brochure (and the service folks at CR, who I think just read it straight from the brochure as well!). Not a problem towing it, since 10% - 15% of 9600 lbs is 960 - 1440 pounds as the max tongue weight capacity of the 'burb, right? WRONG!!! It would be, EXCEPT that the hitch receiver they put on the thing has a max WEIGHT DISTRIBUTING tongue weight of 1,000 pounds. WHAT?!?!? So, just change it out, right? Nope! The hitch receiver can't be swapped out of the Suburban either. It's built into the frame.
So..... looks like I'll be buying a second TRUCK instead of a Suburban. Bummer. This means I have to sell my Corvette, as the wife can't have a truck as her daily driver - she delivers flowers and needs the climate control inside the vehicle.
