Hi coneagle59fal,

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and hopefully to the family. We have a great bunch of people here with lots of information and all willing to share their knowledge when needed.

I moved your question to a better area for opinions and answers. I also changed the tittle for you. Hope you get the answers your looking for.

Enjoy the forum and lets go camping.

I easily tow my NT26RLSS with my F250 so I would think you would be fine with a 3500.

A 3500 Chevy van should work just fine. BTW, what engine/trans combo does it have?

My neighbor has a NT 24RBS and he easily tows it with his 2006 Silverado 1500HD. He said it pulls great. In fact, he even pulled it home with his 2003 Silverado 1500. He said it even pulled fine behind that truck. So your 3500 Chevy van should pull it with no problem.

You should have no problem pulling it. Vans are better for towing travel trailerls then a pick-up. The back axle is closer to to the hitch ball. Must people buy pick-ups over a van. That is why you do not see vans towing. Ernie

We pull our NT 28BRS with our 2008 Tundra...not a problem pulling it

I would think that the heavier platform of the 3500 series would be more than sufficient to pull a North Trail. You see a wide range of tow vehicles pulling these units. Everything from light half tons to heavy one ton diesels, all with great success. Good luck and enjoy.
