How big can I pull Shannon Brown 7-3-03  
I have a 93 S-15 Jimmy 4wd with a vortec V6. The gwvr is a little over 5,000lbs. I know the Jimmy would probably pull a smaller Cabana, but what I am concerned with is the wind drag and resistance and also the ability to climb some mountainous hills with a smaller vehicle. I like the Cabana's but do not know what a lot of people think of pulling one with a smaller vehicle. I have 3 small children and would like to pull as much as possible with this vehicle without buying a bigger truck and the cost of a new trailer. The Jimmy is great but sometimes just not enough. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Shannon

I pull a 5500# KZ Coyote hybrid. 25' with 94 4x4 explorer. I don't like pulling over 60 mph, but have pulled it for over a year so far. We also fill the holding tank and usually take an additional 35 gallons of fresh water in a separate tank in the back of the explorer.

Good Luck

Phil

Make sure to get equalizers and a sway bar if you pulling with a Short wheel base vehicle.

I have a 1996 S-10 Jimmy 4wd with a vortec V6. The gwvr is a little over 5,000lbs. I know the Jimmy would probably pull a smaller Boat, but what I am concerned about, would it pull a boat and trailer that weights around 3720 lbs.(together)Also I plan to tow it up in the mountains to get to the lakes.

Have you looked at the Kiwi or Trail-lite expandables? We have a 2002 Trailblazer w/ v6 and just purchased a Trail-Cruiser 22ft expandable. It's GVWR is 4950 which puts it well within our capacity and it is at the length (ok 2 ft over!) the max length we should be pulling with our wheel base (we were told with a good hitch/sway control we should be fine). It has tons of space and storage inside without the length of the traditional hardsided trailers. Just a thought!
