I have a general question regarding trailer towing. I have a Chevy Tahoe and GM recommends a maximum trailer weight of 7600 pounds. I am quite sure that you donâ€™t want to tow a vehicle that approaches the maximum weight limit. I live in upstate New York, but will be spending a lot of time in the Rocky Mountain West and will have to traverse mountain passes. I want to select a trailer, based on loaded weight, that will easily tow in the West and hopefully be able to maintain highway speeds. Is there a rule of thumb for determining a realistic maximum tow capacity for any tow vehicle? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
