This gives you a rig that removes some of the guess work of selecting a tow vehicle. Good luck.
By buying used I figured if this RV thing wasn't our cup of tea, I wouldn't lose my shirt selling down the road. Especially if I buy right to begin with.
I will be selling one of my existing vehicles and use the tow vehicle for my main transportation. But then, my existing ride sits at the airport 7 days at a time. Btwn our two existing vehicles our total mileage is 35k for our 3 year old car and one year old car. So I wouldn't be putting a lot of mileage day to day on the used 2000 F-250 I'm looking at.
Its just really hard to justify 50k for a new truck at this moment.
