    Bendo,
    3000 lbs sounds kind of light for a 33 footer. Is this the dry weight? Remember you will probably end up with around 2000 to 2500 extra lbs of load when you put everything in the trailer. The hensley arrow system is worth the money IMO. What size motor does your Yukon have and what axle ratio? Does it have the towing package, trans cooler, oil cooler, heavy duty suspension. Check with your local dealer about the tow capacity or there are places on the internet that will give you the info. Don't remember the web add. Good luck

    Bendo,
    If you have the Yukon XL 2500 with the 8100 engine, 3.73 or 4.10 rear axle you should be in good shape. Tow rating on this vehicle is 12000. The 1500 with the 5300 engine is rated around 8600 with a/t and 4.10 axle. XL 1500 around 8800.
