Hi, new member here. I have a 2021 Silverado Traill Boss with the 6.2 engine, 3.23 rear axle, advanced trailering, Z71 with 2" lift skid plate, short bed crew cab. We've been hauling a 28 ft. travel trailer with no problem or weight issue. My gvwr 1s 7000#. I was wondering if I can safely haul a 1/2 ton friendly 5th wheel camper with this set up. The trailers I have looked at are 7500 t0 10000# dry weight with pin weight of 1100 to 1700#. The dealership web sites say they carry several brands of 1'2 ton capable campers but I'm a little skeptical of that. I was wondering if someone has tried doing this and if it's safe or possible with this set up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
