Anyone towing with GMC Acadia without towing package? [6X12]
Anyone towing with a GMC Acadia? We have 2014 SLT-1 without the towing package and FWD only. Downsized and recently got rid of our 26' toy hauler and looking to get a 6X10, 6X12, or 7X12 V Nose Single Axle. Found several that are under 1200lbs. The 7X12 Carry-On was actually listed at 999lbs, sort of a 6.5' wide, not full 7ft.
The GMC is rated to tow 2000lbs without the tow package. I'm figuring:
240lbs - Bike
150lbs - Generator
125lbs - Water, 15 gallons
20lbs - Pressure Washer
30lbs - EZUP
200lbs - Tools, chairs, bicycle, other stuff (this might be a little high).
That's 765 lbs. 999 + 765 = 1764lbs GCWR is 7500lbs. Acadia Curb weight is 4850lbs.
Trying to get some updated posts on towing experience WITHOUT tow package. Comments, thoughts, running WD hitch?.
Geeze, the 2017 got reduced to 1000lbs. Thanks!
