    I have an 85 pickup and had a 91 Suburban, but I'm wondering about the towing capability of a Blazer? I need to dump the truck due to to many bodies and not enough seating. I've heard good and bad about towing with a Blazer so I figured I'd come to the masters and get some input. I'm looking at a popup camper or maybe a small hard side trailer.

    My apologies, I meant to post in the 2nd Gen board. If any of you have some good insight, I'll take it too. Thanks.

    People have been towing with subs forever.Look on the drivers door jamb to see what the towing limit is.Should be on a silver plate or a sticker.

    dont know what the max tow weights are, but I know that the guy a few houses down tows a pop-up with his pretty regularly with no apparent downsides.

    I tow a ski 21ft ski boat. I've been told to keep it outta OD (if you have a 700tranny).
