Talking New to Me Tow vehicle

I just got a new to me tv. It is a 2004 chevy 2500HD LS Duramax (LLY engine) Crew Cab with 155000 miles on her and I only paid $6000 (I know, I know I stole it. she's in awesome condition just needs a set of tires). I can't wait to try it with the Hi-Lo in a couple of weeks. I still have my 07 GMC 1500 and it did a good job towing but the 2500HD should pull my 290B so much better.

Congrats. My inlaws tow a 36' fifthwheel toyhauler with that same truck. I've used it to pull a boat. I hope it came with mirrors, you'll need them to make sure your Hi-Lo is back there!

Yeah I pulled a 25' Bayliner cruiser - about 7000Lbs. with trailer. Could hardly tell it was back there.

I have the same TV long bed 2003 4WD and have put well over 23000 miles towing my 2805 HiLo. Love it and the mileage I get with it. For a good view behind with that long of a RV, I feel you will need additional extension mirrors . I know they helped me. Have fun.

Default New Pre loved tow vehicle.

Enjoy your new to you tow vehicle. Does it have a long or short bed.? Take a picture and post it. This will be a good match for your HiLo. We pull our 25ft. Classic with a 1997 F250 8ft. bed with cap/4x4. We love our gas guzzler. Have to look in the extension mirrors to make sure the HiLo is still there.
