Best length TV for a 23D INt

We are considering a International 23D and our Ford Powerstroke 4 door long bed seems way too long to tow with. My original thought was shorter was better for backing up, my big bugaboo. Hate backing up.

The truck one already has is usually the best choice from a financial point of view, assuming it's capable of doing the job. Yours is certainly more than capable! You may want something like an Airsafe hitch for a smaller trailer like that with a big beast of a tow vehicle, but an Airsafe is a lot cheaper than the depreciation on a new truck.

We pull with a long bed Ford F350. Can't even tell it is back there with that diesel engine. Oh, it is equipped with a backup camera for hooking up. As a female on the road alone right now, I have no issues whatsoever. Yay me! Ok, we have to have a long bed since we own a farm. What is the short bed good for anyway?

I forgot to mention this will mostly be used for towing. So getting good mileage unloaded not very important.

If you were concerned about gas mileage you never would have bought a Ford!

A good number of folks tow their 23-24' trailers with Jeep Grand Cherokees. Nice and short.
