Just bought my first HD truck - used 2020 GMC 3500 AT4.

We bought more truck than we need with a small to mid-size travel trailer but are really happy with the truck. My thought is better to have too much truck than too much trailer. Ideally wanted a 2500 but the deal on this was too good to pass up. We have a lot of questions around adding weight to the bed in winter, tires, DEF, suspension, etc. but will do a search and post in the right thread for those.

So far I have added the Leer HF650M Tonneau and have mixed feelings on it.

Nice! You can never buy too much truck. You might trade the trailer off one day and realize you want a much bigger unit.

I live in Wisconsin been here since 2000 until this year I drove a 2003 silverado 1500 z71. never added weight for the winter just hit the auto 4wd button when the roads were snowy or rainy and 4 high if I had to bust through higher drifts. don't plan on adding weight to my new 2500 z71 either

Congrats on the truck! I wanted an AT4 but couldnt find them within 250 miles of me at the time.

You can never have too much truck. Always better to have a setup that isnt sweating doing what you need it to do instead of "wasting" money that just barely gets you by.

Personally, i go to home depot and grab sandbags for the winter. Then dump it in my kids pit in the summer. I get anywhere from 6-12 bags depending on their stock at the time - they cost a smidge over $4 per 50lb bag. I evenly distribute to each size, and then in front of and behind the wheelwell hump in the bed. Makes a world of difference and they wont slide around back there.
