WE are in the process of researching a Dodge Durango to pull our 23' Oliver. We will go with the V8 AWD as our trailer will be around 5000 lbs. Probably could go with the V6 as it's rated to tow 6200 lbs, but the added power and the heavy duty tow package makes for a better tow vehicle. It seems to be a good alternative between the mid sized SUV's and the full size SUV's. A log of good reviews and info on the DodgeDurango forum.
Sheesh, this campin' RV stuff is getting expensive.

Hi: Perry P... Nothing worse than "Mad mosquito's" They ruin everything!!!
Yes that's our new 5.0TA. Getting her ready for an extended trip south. Last pic of "Escape Hatch II" looking forlorn.

Well I pull mine with a 2012 Colorado 4-door, 4x4 with a Inline-5. But mine isn't the deluxe.

I'm of the opinion that having more information is better than less.
You sound like a UAW worker.

Was CEP ( Communication, Electrical, Paperworkers ? ). Before that it was Newspaper Guild. Not sure what they are now, but could well be combined with UAW.
No matter. I'm retired for some two years.
For what it's worth, if I buy a new tow vehicle, I'll be looking at Pilot, Highlander and Santa Fe. For what it's worth, I really couldn't care which one I ended up with as long as I got good value. For what it's worth, I lost interest in cars about 30 years ago.
So, I'm not really sure what you mean.

Prompted me to review my vehicle history.
'58 Pontiac sedan that I had to share with my mother.
Simca had really good brakes.
VW Fastback with the gas heater.
VW Beetle. Plowed through the deepest snow with chains on the drive wheels.
1957 Triumph TR3 ( not the 3A with the wide grin ).
Datsun pickup. Didn't even get the radio option. When asked what colour, I said whatever.
Fiat 128 Sport Coupe. Took maybe two years to rust to junk.
VW bus. Removed all the seats and seat belts in the back with plans to convert it into a camper. Never happened.
Nissan ( or maybe Datsun? ) King Cab.
'87 Subaru Loyale. Kept it 13 years.
94 Ford Explorer.
2008 RAV4 Sport V6. Told my wife I was going to Safeway, but I stopped at the dealer and bought the vehicle on my way to the grocery store.

Towing unit/ truck

Pay load in the bed is important when it comes to slide in campers and 5 wheel .towing rating is different. for example my dodge Dakota has a 1500 lbs pay load in the bed .the tow rating is 5700 lbs .as for a short box for 5wheel i fixed lots in the body shop for cab strikes from the trailer on sharp turns . You should get a v8 or diesel 3 L the new dodge 3L diesel dodge has 6200 lbs payload in the bed and a tow rating of 8600lbs + 40 mpg empty and about 30mpg with trailer . I recommend a bed length of 8' to 6.6' for proper clearance .

You missed my point.
GM lied and covered up for TEN years.
Toyota did the same for only THREE years.
Even NASA could find no mechanical or electrical reason for the sudden acceleration.
GM paid 35 million dollars for lying for 10 years and Toyota paid 1.2 Billion for lying less than 1/3 the time.
Obvious double standard.
I've driven Toyotas and a few Hondas for the last 40 years with absolutely no problems whatsoever.
Your intentional bias was obvious and needed to be pointed out.

You cannot miss something that does not exist
