can a silverado 4.3 engine pull a 18" fifth wheel trailer
I have a 04 silverado with a 4.3 engine and I would like to purchase a fifthwheel trailer. Can this truck pull a trailer that is 18 to 20 " long?
I have a 2009 silverado 1500 crew cab 2 wheel drive and I'd like to know if my huckabuck can handle a fifth wheel
Nope . Reason being, the 6 cyl just doesn't have enough power to pull that baby. If you had a 2500 HD or 3500 HD whether Diesel / Gas with 4x4 and either a 1/2 ton , 3/4 or a 1 ton chassis ... then you could pull it off because the power and torque is there. 4.3 L is a pepy engine, but with a fifth wheel attached.... a lot of stress will go to the engine, tranny, and rear end.....
I didn't know they made trailers 18 to 20 inches (") long?
