    Will a Avalanche Tow a****

    I have a buddy fixing to buy a New 34 Sea Ray and he thinks he can pull it with his Avalanche . I figure that boat weigh's around 16-18k pounds . This aught to be a good one to watch.I am bringing my camera . He is moving up from a jet ski and had a ski boat once so this will be his first real boat.

    I told him he needed a Dually at least and that might not be enough truck. He asked could he put a dually rear end and fenders under his truck to help pull it.

    What do you think is going to happen ??

    With all due respect, he sounds like a moron.

    I don't know if it will have trouble towing, but I can guarantee that it will still be an ugly truck!!

    this is no chit my dad pulls his 1985 34' sea ray express crusier to and from the marina every year boat sits on a custom four axle trailer. oh yea he uses his 2004 Ford Explorer 4.6L V-8. It actually does a pretty good job! this is on flat roads its pretty neat to see going down the road. I have pictures I will post them later.

    Re: Will a Avalanche Tow a****

    pulled my buddies bayliner contessa (although it was only a 10 beam) 120 miles...

    and also pulled his 42' wellcraft excaliber all the way from Detroit to central minnesota then to duluth.

    that was with a 1 ton dually.

    i could'nt imagine pulling a big sea ray 12 beam with an avalanche...

    I would not want to be on the same road he is when pulling it. I would hate to see a insurance claim get denied when he tries to explain the he is over the max weight by more than 10K lbs. Hope he knows a good transmission mechanic.
