Anyone use a Suburban to tow 20+ foot bass boats? How do they perform? Thank you.

I seen a guy pull up to the ramp yesterday with a Toyota pickup. The old smaller one dragging a 21’ bass boat. With a Suburban you should be great! Lol man I have pulled a 19’ boat with a v 6 with no issues. But in 2009 I bought a Hemi. 4x4 and I would tow anything with that! I think you will be fine!

It will perform just like a pickup truck with a cap on the bed.

Not quite, but close. On the newer ones the independent suspension makes it a little different. Plus, on the shallow sloped ramps, it’s hard to launch solo without getting wet since you ain’t climbing over the bed side and walking out to the boat.

open tailgate and climb through the cab. Wish I could do that with my Super Duty. Lakes by me are getting so low that on some of the ramps I have my truck backed in to the front wheels to get the boat off the trailer. Thankfully its summer time and I can rock my crocks wading to the boat.
