GM Astro vans

Are all GM Astro vans from 1999 to present still rear wheel drive?
And would any of these years be able to pull popup camper, weight of camper less than 2000 pounds?

Most are rear wheel drive, some are all wheel drive. Check the owners manual for towing weight limitations. They do have a towing package as an option.

I agree 100%. Good advice.

Make sure the towing package is a factory equipped one and includes heavy duty cooling, brakes and the like.

The newer ones probably come with the HD parts and a trailer ready hitch and wiring harness if they have the tow package.

If not, there are direct type plug in harnesses that will wire up the trailer.
