Chevy Canyon and a 5.0TA

We are in the process of getting a GMC Canyon 2.8 Diesel pick-up (like the Chevy Colorado) and the next step is purchasing a 5.0 Escape. We are assuming the pick-up and camper worked well together. With your experience, are their any recommendations, or things we should know, or words of caution, as we go forward?

There are at least 2 threads here from folks who tow a 5.0TA with a GMC Canyon. Just do a search on it! Lots of good information. The main thing to consider is the pin weight of the 5.0TA will get you close to the payload limits on these mid size trucks, so you have to think about how you load the truck and trailer. It is a combination that seems to work for those who do it!
