I have a 2018 RZX2 with the standard dual axle boatmate trailer. Total weight is around 7,250 lbs dry. I currently lease a GMC Canyon Denali with the Duramax diesel which is sufficient for very short hauls, but not likely sufficient for longer trips with the boat. When my lease on the Canyon is up, I have been thinking about trading it in on a GMC Sierra 1500 Denali.

Does anyone have experience towing this much weight with the Sierra 1500 over long distances (500+ miles)? Is it sufficient or should I be looking at the 2500 instead (which won’t fit in my garage, so I’d prefer to not have a truck quite that large if I don’t really need it).
