2002 GMC Safari SLE - Safarout

Postby Safarout [OP] » April 8th 2021, 3:20am

Hello I recently picked up this gem: 2002 2wd 40k miles. I am really excited about the vehicle. I had been searching for around a year. I found it down in Georgia and had it shipped to me. For all intensive purposes this will be our tow vehicle for our 2016 Rpod 180. Dry weight is around 2900lbs. With a weight distribution hitch and trailer brake controller I feel the van should handle it with ease. We have been using a single cab RAM 1500 to tow however it is not very practical for road trips with the dog and cat. I am grateful such a forum exist as it serves as a wealth of information for all the Astro/Safari lovers out here.

Only 40K on it?! SCORE!!! It's got some curb appeal to boot!

Welcome aboard!

Welcome to the site, you definitely found a nice low mileage van there. Hope we get to see your build and your camper.

Nice find! You will love it. We've had our 2002 since new, been all over the country. About 200K on it now - great vehicle. Had a 1998 bought new but it got totaled in 2002. Enjoy!
