    No, you still need a tranny cooler for towing! Engine oil cooler and tranny cooler are completely seperate coolers. Get the biggest tow vehicle your budget will allow.

    thing to remember about a TV, GVWR is total weight of EVERYTHING, as already said, that includes people pets gear fuel.....

    someone said something about a short wheel base vehicle, actually the shorter the TV, the easier it is to back. I've pulled an older model 24' travel trailer with my K-5 Blazer and it did great! the important things to remember, BRAKING. unless you have a tow package on any vehicle, you have standard brakes. a vehicle with a tow package usually has better braking, but a brake controller is EASY to install and use.

    the other thing is, a weight distribution hitch and sway bar is a GREAT investment, and is well worth the investment, unless you have a 3/4 ton or higher rated TV. and even with one of those, if you're pulling a heavy trailer, the sway bar and weight distribution will help.
