It is only rated for about 9600 pounds. That is total towing weight. 6900 for truck gross weight.
Large truck for small engine.

That trailer is a good match for that truck.
I have a 5.3/10speed Trail Boss. Pulled our 6000lb boat super capably this summer, other than you’re deep in the throttle up the hills. 22’ boat trailer, truck drove like nothing was behind it save for watching g the gas gauge drop a lot quicker.
In fact our 18 year old pulled the boat about 1000 miles this summer. First time he’d towed anything. He thought it pulled great and didn’t even phase him. Only comment was I’d leave him up the grades pulling the toyhauler unless he floored it!

Light tongue weight and not too long, truck will handle that trailer just fine.

Yes, that truck is capable of towing that trailer. Things that will make a difference in your experience are passengers/gear, fully loaded truck bed, and where you plan to tow.

Yeah really... 5.3L these days is "big block power."


Putting 10-ply tires on half ton trucks since aught-four.

Grand son has a 5.3 in GMC Sierra. Seems to be under powered!

Another pretty broad, vague, statement...
