If you LOVE your truck, clap your hands!

OK, it turns out that my faithfull LR4 is not enough for my FC27FB 2016, so off to buy I truck I went. While in FL Sunday is the busiest day at car dealerships, in CO they are closed, so no luck. This gives me a few hours to consider options, so please let me know if you LOVE your truck, so I buy the same. Sort of a poll asking for the kindness of strangers to chose wisely.

Thanks!

PS: If you hate yours, sorry and please also let me know, so I benefit from your mistake

Ford, Chevy/GMC, Ram and Toyota (at least) all make good trucks. You need to look at what you need and like, and then compare them against your own preferences.

After our first year of towing our 25FB International with a Range Rover we came to the same conclusion and last March bought a 2016 Ford F350 Power Stroke diesel. We now have about 5K towing miles and are extremely happy with the truck. Very relaxed driving no matter the terrain. Good luck in your search.

I love my 2010 Sport Trac Adrenalin. It had. Tw cap of 6990 and payload of 1400.
Not for everyone but so far it works great with our 25'.

I love mine. A properly configured Escalade/Yukon/Tahoe has the power and capability to tow a 30' Airstream plus makes an excellent daily driver.

"clap clap clap"

Love my 2005 GMC Sierra Denali. 205,000 miles and still going strong. Pulls my 30' bunk just fine

There are so many good trucks out there these days. Just decide what size truck you want/need and then choose the brand that suits you. We went with a RAM 2500 and love the way it tows, but we also liked things about the others we drove. Some things that made us choose the RAM include good turning radius, felt more nimble than others we drove, liked the design of the dash, pricing, and the wonderful Cummins inline 6. The Chevrolet/GMC twins may have won out, but they had just come out with the new body style at the time and there were no deals that matched our price point.

You cannot go wrong with any full size truck from the big three. Do consider a diesel for your size trailer. My GMC/Duramax has been the best truck I have owned. Minimal repair issues over eight years and 158k miles. The Allison trans has worked flawlessly with no repairs needed. Service engine and transmission at recommended levels and enjoy.
In the 1/2 ton arena the Nissan/Cummins is too new to have a track record.
