where to look for tow vehicle

I am looking for a other tow vehicle Ford F350 dodge 3500 or simular
here in the netherlands these trucks are hard to find
I know Ebay and traderonline are there other good online sites to look
for a truck like that
I know a 350 or 3500 a bit big for a 27FT airstream but wife like the looks
of the dually models

Thanks Remco The Netherlands

Not only it it a "bit bid" (big?), the stiff springs may well beat the trailer to death.

Wow! I can't imagine driving a dually on European roads, especially secondary roads in the countryside, or within towns and villages. As I recall, even most mid sized delivery trucks over there have single rear axles.

Also, be aware that the 3/4 or 1 ton trucks have a noticeably larger turning circle than their 1/2 ton cousins. That was one of the first things I noticed when going from a 1/2 ton Silverado to my 2500HD. If I find the turning circle limiting here in the states, it would be agony in the Netherlands (and, yes, I have driven there).

A dually would be a real problem on many of the streets I have driven in while there. Trying to park a dually there makes me shudder.

Hola Remco

In my mind I think a 1957 Imperial would be the best. If you can not drive your car then look for the shortest truck. Have you given any thought to the International Scout truck ????
