Pickup truck owners: What brand of truck do you use for RVing?

What brand of pickup truck do you use for your RVing? Do you prefer Ford, Chevy, Dodge? GMC? Toyota? Or something else? If you own more than one brand of truck, please select the one you use the most. Thank you!

Please feel to leave a message about why you chose your particular truck. We believe other truck owners will find that interesting, and those in the market for a new truck will appreciate your thoughts.

Again, remember, the poll may take a few moments to load, so stand by.

Definitely In the minority here, 2018 Nissan Frontier 4L V6 pulling our 5487# TT, I’m 900# under rating, it has no problem maintaining highway speed but I drive 62mph, no sway, no handling problems. 9.3 mpg but big enough for the job at hand… and it didn’t cost $60,000 to $85,000.

I guess someone needs to tell you that Dodge has not made a pickup since the year 2010. Ram became its own division at that time. They are called Ram Now.

I would think that a “reasonable person” would be able to assume that Dodge/Ram would be in the same category. I wouldn’t think that the survey is meant to be THAT technical.

Technical? 13 years is a long time to not call it a Ram

We have a 2017 Ford F 350 DRW King Ranch, 6.7 Diesel. Previous truck was 1999 F350 SRW 7.3 Diesel with 308,000 miles when sold to sister- in- law 5 years ago. They tow a 5th wheel also. We stand by Ford trucks!

Not surprisingly I am in the majority. Ford all the way. Strong and dependable truck. Ten years with same truck and very minimal issues. F 250 Powerstroke

2018 Ford F-150 XLT. We selected the Ford because of the 34 (30-something anyway) gallon fuel tank. It really helps when you are driving in states like Nebraska!

Dodge hasn’t made trucks for 10 years, Stellantis (formerly Chrysler) builds Ram Trucks now.

2017 GMC Sierra SLT 1500 with max towing package taking it up to 11,700 lbs towing capacity. To me, the perfect truck for every day use but with plenty of power, with the 6.2L, to pull my 8,000 lb trailer.

Custom ordered Ram 2500. Didn’t want the diesel. Didn’t need heated seats and all the other nonsense. Just need it to pull my trailer. Could not be any happier. Got the color I wanted and price point at $52k. Gas 6.2hemi that will pull 17500

Dodge is gas, not diesel. Took a while to find it.

My old motorhome has a 1976 Ford drive train and is still going strong. I use my 1977 F250 to pull my boat which I sometimes camp overnight on.
