CPTTango30, have you guys decided on a camper? I can understand how people would think towing these heavy weights would beat the daylights out of our Colorado's/Canyon's. So many people have come up to me at gas stations and camp grounds with amazement that my Colorado can tow that behemoth. But I think most those folks aren't familiar with modern engineering and the capabilities we're able to design and engineer into cars these days. Today's trucks are a WORLD of difference even from when my Dad used to own his cherished Nissan pickup back in the early 90's.
If I had to do it over again...sometimes I think I would have opted for the duramax and sometimes I'm glad I didn't. The V6 is an awesome engine (plus the trifecta tune makes it so much fun to drive). Even while towing I'm amazed at how well this engine does. Don't get me wrong, you can definitely feel the weight back there but it still goes and it doesn't struggle nearly as much as I would have thought. When I first started I was white knuckling the steering wheel the entire trip but after 8 runs with the camper, I'm whipping that baby around like it's nobodies business. By the way, we can't say enough good things about the camper. I mean really, it's just awesome. We must have looked at 100's of campers and this has one of the best floor plans by far (IMO). The bathroom is actually usable. I'm 6'3" and I can take a shower in it and the wife has a ton of counter space for her bathroom stuff so she's happy. Plus the recliners are directly in front of the TV... It's just really nice. By the way, the Imagine comes in a slightly smaller/lighter floor plan now (2150RB) and with a cool looking front fiberglass cap.
