For all of you that think a SUV can't out brake a full size truck, are the same people that thought this could never happen.

You can tow with a Porsche and get squashed between your trailer and another car. Your call.

If its that close you going to hit it regardless what you are driving.
Your initial instinct going to be jerking the wheel to avoid it.
I know because it happened to me.
The only thing that saved me was the weight and the bulk of the F-250 with a 160" wheelbase keeping the trailer in line.
Never touched the brakes , I knew better.

Show me the pile of stuff you want pack, where you want to travel, how long you intend to stay on the road makes an altogether different proposition.
These 2 answers probably made the most sense out of everything to me. We are shopping too and this answered me.
