Our TCM Friends Visit GM's VEC


Our friends at Truck Camper Magazine thought a quick stop by the GM engineering headquarters would be a nice thing to do. After all, GM did help them pick out a brand-new Chevy Silverado 3500 HD Z71 4x4 for the their trek around the country with their new Lance camper. 

But a funny thing happened on the way to Warren, Mich.--they almost got arrested and found themselves smack in the middle of a "Faces of GM" video production. Publisher Gordon White offers all the behind-the-scenes details in the background story, and you can find the video that GM produced from their meeting (as well as other Faces of GM videos) by clicking here. We recommend the background story on the TCM site as well; it's pretty funny.

For those with good memories, you might remember we had the chance to follow Gordon and Angela White through their selection process when they were deciding on which heavy-duty pickup choose. In the end, they chose the Chevy Silverado HD 3500 4x4 Z71 crew cab with the short bed and Vortec 6.0-liter V-8. We expect to see more from them in the future as they push their rig to the limits doing what they love to do: driving their pickup and camper all over the country.

@Ford850 Nor would you be going too far Off Road with it. This is basically a pavement pounder, too top heavy.


Loaded for a decent trip there are very few campers that can ride on less than a1 ton dually.
I say that because you have in effect loaded a sail on your truck.
Curvy mountain roads or typical side winds seriously stress your tires. Over heating them and causing blowouts.

Take the led. AND set the proper example.
That's a fine truck. but you over loaded it.
Your running on square tie on the rear. They will wear out early or potentially over heat and blow out. Its not just your family that could get hurt.
Your endangering my life and my family when ever you are on the road.
This article is like a invitation to a huge lawsuit if you a should ever have an accident.
