There are some jobs where conventional towing methods aren’t going to be the best way to do things, but what can you do if your truck doesn’t have the right equipment for a gooseneck/fifth-wheel trailer method? We’re pretty excited to say that we can now offer the 2016 GMC Sierra with a gooseneck towing package in Fond du Lac WI as either a factory- or dealer-installed feature.
How do I add a Gooseneck towing platform to the GMC Sierra HD?
GMC dealers like Holiday Automotive will now be able to offer a gooseneck/fifth-wheel trailering prep package to help truck owners get the most out of their GMC Sierra. The new package, which GMC states will cost $350, adds a frame-mounted hitch platform and tray that accepts a gooseneck ball hitch or fifth-wheel mounting bracket.
How much can the GMC Sierra HD Tow with a Fifth-Wheel Trailer?
The 2016 GMC Sierra HD is already an incredibly capable truck with impressive towing capacities, but when you are using other methods, such as gooseneck or fifth-wheel towing, you’ll be able to expand your capabilities even further. Below is a quick breakdown of the 2016 GMC Sierra HD’s max trailer capacities.
2500HD – 18,000 lbs.
3500HD SRW – 17,500 lbs.
3500HD DRW – 23,200 lbs.
Trailering Technology in the 2016 GMC Sierra
One feature that is taking off in pickup trucks is a system of trailering cameras, which can give you multiple views and angles of what is happening all around your truck and trailer. The idea is that it removes pretty much every blind spot, and gives you a better picture of your surrounds so you can safely maneuver. Trailering camera systems are available for both the GMC Sierra 1500 and on Sierra HD models.
