Gooseneck Truck For Sale Near Peoria, Il

If you're searching for the best truck to pull a horse trailer, you've come to the right place. Our Silverado lineup includes many flatbed trucks with a gooseneck hitch. The best trucks in our lineup to pull a horse trailer, transport agriculture or heavy equipment would be a three-quarter or one-ton truck. The Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 are not only high towing capacity trucks, but they offer so much versatility with all kinds of farming and lifestyle activities. When trailering or loading outdoors at night, you will love the Silverado HD High Country bright task lighting system that is located all around the vehicle. A few task lighting locations are the cargo light, on the hitch, behind the bed and on the mirrors. This light makes loading and unloading in the evenings so much easier as it shines on the ground and all throughout the bed area.

A gooseneck tow hook on a trailer has the ability to pull wider and heavier loads versus a tagalong or bumper pull trailer. You may be wondering, how does a gooseneck hitch work? The long, arched shape of the hitch attachment is what gives it its name. First you will backup the truck towards the trailer, then grease the ball, lift the tailgate, connect the cable to the truck, attach the hitch and finally attach the breakaway cable.

What is a breakaway cable and how do I use it? The breakaway cable is a chord with a clip designed as a safety feature. Its main job is to tigger the breaks in the instance of the trailer becoming disconnected. Fortunately, the heavy duty Chevrolet Silverado trucks offer a high-tech driver info and alert system. The information system on the display screen allows you to check off and confirm each and every step so when you initially attach the trailer to the hitch, you can ensure it is connected properly. The built-in alert system will detect and notify you if there is anything concerning going on such as a trailer taillight going out or a malfunction with the connection.

It is easy to forget regular trailer maintenance like repacking and greasing wheel bearings. With the Chevy Silverado, all of the on the trailer mileage data is stored in your programmed trailer profile on your truck which is accessible in the MyChevy App. If you are looking to maintain your trailer or new Silverado as you prepare for farming season or a camping trip, schedule service with our experts at Uftring Chevrolet. One of our sales consultants or sales managers would be trilled to help walk you through the trailering process in person. We want to help train you to use the full benefits of your future Silverado with a gooseneck hitch.

Should I buy a 1500 or 2500 truck?

When choosing which Silverado you want to purchase, it is important to consider exactly what jobs you want to use it for. In our opinion, the Silverado 1500 also known as a half-ton truck is an everyday truck with good gas mileage. You can drive a 1500 from the farm to the freeway. Although it isn't in the heavy duty category, there is no doubt it brings the power and reliability of a true work horse.

The 2500 HD three-quarter ton model is larger in size overall with more power, slightly decreasing fuel economy. It offers a higher ground clearance and a longer wheelbase which can come in handy for hauling heavy machinery, products, livestock or large supply loads. The 2500 Silverados are offered in three different size cabs; regular cab, double cab and crew cab as well as bed size variations including standard and long bed. Our sales consultants are here to help you choose which configuration is best for your lifestyle. We can grab you the keys to one and you can take a test drive today! For an off-road ready option, consider which trim level you want; Silverado ZR2, LT Trail Boss or Custom Trail Boss.
