  1. Very nice. Looks like the perfect setup for driving a pontoon onto the trailer. Think I'll pursue since we trailer every time we go boating.
  2. Yes. Caddy may have had the 8 speed transmission one or two years earlier but not sure. Dealership would know or maybe can find info on the web. Good luck.
  3. I believe the first year Yukon had the 8 speed transmission is when the newer/current body style was introduced which was 2015.
  4. Good idea. You'll save a ton of money over buying new and you'll have an excellent tow rig with factory air leveling already installed. The biggest difference in my previous 2014 GMC Yukon Denali and my newer 2016 GMC Yukon Denali is the 8 speed transmission and there is a world if difference in towing.
  5. The newer 5.3 engines have improvements to boost HP and torque but the vehicles also benefit hugely from the 8 speed transmission available last couple of years.
  6. I agree. My 2016 GMC Yukon Denali came with factory air load leveling system. Huge difference from the previous Yukon.
  7. I drive on but with some of the steep ramps I had to install guides to keep the rear reasonably straight on the trailer. Best money I spent after purchasing the pontoon.
  8. I encountered a very similar situation. The selling dealer where I purchased my Bennington no longer sold Bennington products 6 mos after the sale. He said they would honor the warranty as long as I owned the boat. Two years later I needed a gauge cluster replaced due to fogging and the bimini cover needed fixed at one of the seams. No problem getting both issues resolved. Hopefully you could count on the same type of support for any issues you may have.
  9. I would measure mine and let you know but the boat is still under wraps/storage. Will probably be in storage another 6 weeks. IIRC, it does look like a rubbermaid product.
  10. Are you sure there isn't one already installed under the back of left/front seat?? Lift up the back of seat.
  11. This air horn is self contained and sounds just like the horns on large trucks. I have one on my tractor and it is awesome. http://www.ebay.com/itm/191946111024?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  12. Raystown Lake/Dam near Huntingdon, PA. Lots of coves and places to anchor and hang out. Max. length 28 mi (45 km) Surface area 8,300 acres (33.6 km2) Max. depth 200 ft (61.0 m)
  13. With "6 or so on board" and doing water sports, go with the higher HP engine would be good advice. If you are just cruising around you won't see much difference.
  14. Here are a couple links for more info on Evinrude Etec outboards and pontoons boats. http://www.etecownersgroup.com/ https://www.boattest.com/result/Any%20Manufacturer/Pontoon%20boat/Any%20Size I have an Etec 225HO G! on a Benny R model and have had zero issues to date. The G2 engine series has been out a couple of years and has been holding up well so far according to the etec owners group link given above. Top speed on my current Benny is 46.6 mph with 2 people. I had a very similar pontoon previously with a Yamaha F150 outboard and also had no issues -- it's top speed with 2 people was 40 mph. Not a lot of gain in speed with 240+ HP (HO version is approx 10% higher).
