The 2011 GMC Yukon XL 3/4 ton, is probably the biggest workhorse in the consumer vehicle department, with class-leading 9,600 pounds of towing, large interior space, class-leading power, and great off-road capability.
The fold-flat seats have come in handy countless times. I commonly use the space for my Kayak and paddles, several tool boxes, or extra camping supplies.
The 5.4-Liter, 6.0-Liter Vortec, and especially the 6.2-Liter Flex-Fuel (which I personally own) engines have roughly twice the Hp, as many heavy-duty commercial vehicles. This is the power you will want when merging, or passing other vehicles (even the aggressive ones) on the freeways. And it has the low-end torque to climb the steepest roads even with heavy trailers, and a full interior. Not to mention it can get me over rough, technical terrain.
Speaking of technical terrain, the off-road ability is excellent. Even with my RWD, the Yukon will easily overcome most obstacles on technical forest roads, and I can easily maneuver around twisting former-logging routs; which are the common roads leading to camp grounds. Hence you will have no problem with nearly 10,000 Lbs of RV camper. If you want optimum off-road capability I would recommend the AWD Denali, or 4WD options
I love the styling, and it is the seats are decently comfortable, though not as much as a luxury SUV such as the Cadillac Escalade.
The Yukon XL 2500 has all the luxuries I need, with retractable running boards, XM satellite radio, heated seats, and navigation, with traffic updates. Heated side mirrors, and a rearview mirror camera are also options, however my Yukon does not include them.
I haven’t had any problems with reliability, however I’ve only owned my Yukon XL for 2 months.
