    advise again

    Hi Andy & Ann

    We have purchased a GMC Sierra 2500 HD Auto to pull a Wildcat 31THSB 33' Long Single Slide with rear garage. Advice, we were given is to purchase Heavy Duty model as it will pull most 5vers.

    Regards

    Ant & Debs

    i still say get a proper mini artic unit like a mitzy.isuzu or iveco. thats named a few .tryed n testd system . isuzu do a nice auto /stick shift model or have an electric clutch fitted .i used one on my vwlt worked a treat. they do not seem as big as a yank or newish navarro its worth looking at them.

    Hi andyann

    The key to the truck is really the specification, a HD (Heavy Duty) should have the Tow/Haul Package fitted that will make life considerably easier when you are towing.

    A 2500HD will haul pretty much anything that you want, I have a Ford F250 and it is more then capable.

    A 150 or 1500 would be more than ample for the 5'er you are proposing to tow.
    Worth considering as they are quite a bit smaller than the 250/2500 size.

    HTH

    I would think the sunvalley depending on condition is worth 14-15 thousand,ring Greg/Peter @ Niche they probably supplied it new.
