Figured since this thread is getting some run, and there is some truck-talk, I'd poke my head in. My sublime wife and I are 4 years in to a 5 year plan to buy a camper. We're going to the Tampa RV show this weekend for the 4th year in a row to scope shit out. Our plan is to figure out the approximate camper style, length, weight and cost that's right for us. I know I'm cross-pollinating threads here, but we're basically looking at 17'-25' and 4k-6k dry weight. This size/weight is a step up from our original plans of a hybrid camper, which is significantly lighter than a traditional. This squashes my dream of a Ridgeline (I'm ducking to avoid the predictable hate and Brokeback memes). I'd like something that can tow the camper, fully loaded. Obviously this is the #1 priority. Beyond that, I'm the "Home Depot 3-4 times a year guy", and the truck's primary purpose will be city travel, to and from work. I'm interested in comfort and creature comforts, with a back seat for the dogs and hopefully a child at some point soon. Pretty much all my research has lead me to F150s, which is fine. I just wanted to know if anyone had any strong feelings on any of the other options out there. Ideally I'd like to get a used truck with fewer than 25k miles on it, and keep my price point below 35k. We have money to put a substantial down-payment, and should be able to get great interest rates as our credit is excellent. But the idea is to keep our payment minimal, which will allow us to buy the camper. My wife's car is now paid off, and mine has been for a couple years (years 4 and 2 of the 5-year plan, respectively). So learn me about trucks. The only one I ever owned was a 98 Ranger, which I think barely applies. TL;DR- Buying a truck to tow a camper and drive to work. Ideas?
