Towing 5.0 with a Chevy/GMC

I know many folks choose the Ford F150 to tow their 5th wheels with, and a few tow with Ram trucks. Is anyone towing with a Silverado or Sierra?

Formerly owned a 2007 24' HiLo/ 2003 Tahoe combo. Interested in the 5.0TA

I know I've seen photos of Silverados / Sierras with 5.0TA's and am sure some of those folks will chime in. If you read through the multitude of posts on the forum about towing a 5.0TA, what you will find is that pretty much any half ton truck with adequate payload capacity will tow the 5.0TA easily. I don't think I've ever seen a 5.0TA owner report anything other than "tows like a dream" with any brand half ton. The one thing you need to be mindful of is payload capacity, it can vary widely and you should check the payload rating sticker on your door frame to see what it is for your specific truck.
