If you really want to use an SUV, be sure to install the training wheels:

Like many have stated , legaly you need to watch what the truck is rated to carry .But most trucks will do .
Thanks boot.

What part of Florida will you be in and when are you leaving? I'll be in Tampa and then the keys after Christmas. Give me a call ... maybe we can hook up down there.
Tiz and I will be running the boat down to Hawks Cay on the 29th. Wicked Won will be there about the same time. Call me on my cel after Christmas.

My 42 with trips weighs 12000, and the trailer weighs 4,000. If I were you I would INSIST the 300 gallon tank be empty. That makes a HUGE difference in mine.

Hey,

I pulled a 43 Black Thunder with my 2500 suburban with the 8100 Vortec and a 410 rears, Evan though the truck was rated at 15000 lb. compacity, The motor was not the problom, Across the alley in Fla, Boat started bouncing and folded the stock hitch and rear of frame under, Real scarry feeling at about 60MPH, Definetly upgrade the Hitch and brake pads, Neadless to say, I now have a new dulley, I would never try that trip, as hine site is 20/20 , Just my opinion....

Good luck....
