I'd guess seeing it is so small it was probably made for a girl. Or a gay
I haven't heard of any knocks on them Larry. A friend of mine has one a year
or two old, it has been problem free.
I am thinking about it because the crew cab as enough room for me the
wife and dog. It is short enough to fit in my current garage, as
where the x-cab silvy won't. Plus that I-5 is rated at 242hp and 242
torque (at least to the specs for 08) which will easily tow a small
toy trailer, etc...
What's the GVWR and/or GCWR on that truck? One reason I stepped up to a
Chevy K2500HD is because my lightweight camper, on my 1500 Ram is pushing
the envelope of the GVWR. The Ram (with a few suspension mods) and the
camper perform very well in hardcore 4x4 driving, but on the highway I'm
very aware of the extra weight, therefore I adjust my driving to match.
That's not to say I'm not aware that the Chevy at 8,000 lbs (with a 9,200
lbs GVWR) isn't heavy, just that it handles the same load much better than
my Ram at 6,400 lbs (with a 6,600 lbs GVWR) does.
I'm not looking at a "full size" trailer Ed, but something more along
the line of this
There are also a few other brands similar to this, all of which are
designed for tow behind "small" SUVs and trucks..
That's a pretty nice trailer! I can't speak to your original question, but
it looks like the Colorado shouldn't have much of a problem with it.
Then again, sometime I just might pass you going up a 7% grade, towing my IH
Scout II on a trailer, cruise control set at 70 mph and I see this "little"
Colorado, towing a trailer, keeping up with the unladen Nissans and Toyotas,
and I'll think to myself "that's a pretty nice trailer," then before I know
it, a song I haven't heard in years come on the radio and I've forgotten
"that pretty nice trailer." <GBMFG>
I also saw an episode of Trucks where they put a 4" lift on the same
model Colorado and man it looked sweet. As I recall, but the Silvy
and Colo have a 6 on 5.5 lug pattern which means my MT wheels and
tires come off hte Silvy and go on the Colo!
I'm not sure that's true---or in fact I'm almost sure it's not. The
wheels off of a Toyota Tacoma fit on my 2004 Colorado and the wheels off
of a full-size GMC do not.
That's not speculation--big dummy here bought a set of GMC wheels from a
yard sale assuming they would fit---bad assumption.
Wanna buy a set of GMC alloy wheels?
