    1. How much does your K5 and trailer combo weigh?

    2. Does this trailer have good brakes that are properly working?

    3. Is your 1500 anything but a short bed regular cab? If it isn't a short/reg. than yes I would think you could.

    What engine and trans do you have? 2wd or 4wd? Do you know what axle ratio. All of these things affect the rating. The 1500's when properly equipped have a max tow of 7300 lbs. How far do you want to tow and over what type of terrain? If your blazer weighs in around 5500 then you can go with a 7K trailer. Usually $2500 new. If you are over that weight a 10K trailer would go for $4000. Best bet would be to weigh you blazer when you have the axles in and look for a used trailer locally. Usually cost 1/2 to 2/3 of a new one.
