  • Does anyone know the tow capacity of a 1995 K1500 gas Suburban..4wd, V-8?? I am getting conflicting info from different sources, including GM. Need to find out before we buy an RV trailer....one trailer we are looking at is 4265 lbs. The other one we really like is 5765 lbs. I've been told the old Suburban may not be able to handle the heavier trailer. Would love to hear some of you towing gurus out there!

    Drummergirl, I found some info online, I assume yours is a 5.7 Liter V-8. Take it for what its worth, I found two websites saying that your towing capacity is 6000 Pounds, don't hold me responsible for that. If I were you I would also check your owners manual if you have one, it will be more specific. Also consider the loaded weight of the trailer, water tanks and cargo will add to the weight of the trailer.

    One must also consider the combined gross weight rating of your Suburban and travel trailer. You can exceed that combined rating and get into problems also. The ratings should be listed in your manual or possibly inside the drivers door.

    Last but not least, braking ability must also be considered. Trailer brakes and a brake controller are a must when towing that kind of weight. Also most of the time trailer brakes are required by law with trailers with a certain gross weight.
