Forget the F-150 with heated seats. What I really NEED is one of those hearse-equipped Airstream motorhomes pulling an Econoline ambulance as a "toad."

Of course I'm an elitist. Look around you.

Couple of Ideas. Have you looked at the Nissan Titan or the Toyota T-100. The Titan is a great truck, my neighbor has one and is very pleased. Pretty good gas mileage too. I have a Toyota Tacoma that is a tuff little truck wouldn't use it for towing but the T-100 or maybe the Tundra will most likely handle the Bambi. I have owned Dodge Dakotas and have been happy with the truck the interior not so much but that is a different story.

The only stupid questions is the question not asked. Good luck on your hunt. Don't let the gear heads scare you they are probably on a different forum right now asking questions about their trucks.

My Chevy S-10 4x4 ran afoul of a much larger vehicle a couple of weeks ago & the insurance company has totaled it, so now I need a new truck. I'm gravitating toward another extended-cab S-10 because it was small yet versatile (it's my only vehicle), big enough to haul dirt, and strong enough to tow the Bambi. On chat night, though, someone suggested that I test drive a Silverado, but I just drove by one at a dealer & it looks like MONSTER TRUCK to me. It had to be 3 feet longer than the Ford Ranger next to it & very tall & cavernous.

I just can't see piloting that tank around day to day. So, uh, is little truck/MONSTER TRUCK the only choice, or is there something in the middle?

And no giggling on the part of you folks who swap out drive trains or gears or whatever the heck it is that you do when you tinker with an engine. I won't stand for it.
Dodge Dakota would be mid-size...
