Truck size for boat
« on: November 04, 2009, 09:18:32 PM »
What size truck is need for a 30 footer with twins?  I\'m guessing around 10,000 lbs.  I\'m boat shopping and have a 1500 Silverado \"not big enough\"......  I travel highway once a year with the boat.

Personally I would go for a 2500 Diesel.  I have a 4x4 Chevy with the Duramax, and have no doubt it would pull that perfectly.  I pull 6500# and it does not know it is there.  I just like knowing that I am slightly over gunned, and the truck is not working it\'s tail off if I decide to take a road trip.  I would also go 4x4, cause being stuck in the ramp is embarassing, not to mention can be risky to boat, truck, and anyone near by.
