They are both auto ride too Id be guessing. Umm I think there wouldnt be much of a difference except the Caddy looks cooler! LOL

And your one cool gut to buy a 05 Escalde for a relative!..Or are you buying it from a relative?

I had an 02 Escalade with the 6.0L 345 hp engine and towed my 28' Advantage. Did 2 trips a year from NW to Havi and back. Lost the tranny at 54,000 miles & 3 months out of warranty. Called Cadillac and they put in a new tranny at no cost to me. Early models had Tranny issues, which I think were cause by a poor design on the oil pump. Fixed in the later models. My 1st tranny ran 190 degrees when not towing and went to 200+ towing. The new tranny temp only ran 150/160 and went to 190 when towing. I thought it was an awesome tow vehicle and had great acceleration even towing the Advantage.

Do you think you could have pulled a 8k enclosed trailer 6 or 7 times a year?
