I have always wanted to own a truck.
Now that I'm retired, I finally have
one and I love it. I use it to pull a
pop-up camper that I used to pull with
my wife's Trailblazer. Although the
Trailblazer did good, the Silverado is
excellent! You don't even know it's
there. The only problem I have is my
wife wants to drive it all the time
(her Trailblazer is an '02 LTZ with all
the goodies)! The mileage is not great
but is better than I expected, even
when pulling the pop-up. If the cost of
repairs matches the Trailblazer, I will
I have the trailer towing package and
was very impressed with how little I
had to add (trailer brake
controller,which "plugs in", and a
hitch) to get rv'ing. The trailer tow
selector on the transmission is very
impressive. I am also amazed at the use
of computers in vehicles today.
At this time, the only improvement I
would like to see would be a switch
selector for the 4WD (like the
Trailblazer has) instead of the lever
on the floor.
