Hi, Lyn Hill, and welcome to the forum.

A few more specifics will get you better answers,,and a range of opinions. 

Which trailer? E1 or E2?

What year Yukon, engine, towing package, etc?

I own a 2019 Yukon SL 5.3L V8 2WD with a tow package and payload is 1691# per door sticker. I have ordered the E2 twin beds along with the Andersen WDH. AGM batteries with no solar panels. Thoughts on this set up as far as towing are appreciated. I have towed my 17' 1965 Airstream Caravel for 20+ years with Yukons...no WDH...no issues.

Below are spec's for your truck.  If you are going local and don't have any off road or mountain trips in the future it may be OK.

But if you are going into mountains, the Yukon IMHO is not what I would want to be driving with an OE2.  I believe it would be dangerous to do so.

My personal rule of thumb is that I want a truck that has 40 to 45% spare capacity due to interstate travels, mountains and out back adventures.
