When we talk about RVing, or caravanning, the first thing most people will conjure up in their minds is a big pickup able to pull the largest, most house-like camper on the market. In fact, check out our recent ranking of Top 10 Pickups for RVing this summer! Still, many RVing enthusiasts prefer SUVs for their livability and comfort. It’s worth keeping in mind, though, that even the biggest SUVs have less towing capacities than pickups.
1- Chevrolet Tahoe & Suburban and GMC Yukon & XL
These big SUVs from General Motors are still among the most popular go-to models for RVing enthusiasts, in good part because you can get eight occupants into them. While some versions come with a powerful 6.2L V8 and 460 lb-ft of torque (with an available 10-speed automatic transmission!), the weapon of choice for towing might be the smaller 5.2L V8 (335 hp, 383 lb-ft of torque), which according to the manufacturer can haul up to 8,600 lbs with rear-wheel drive, or 8,400 with all-wheel drive. The model’s looks will probably change next year, though, since they are based on the same company’s recently redesigned pickups.
