Selected ”other” as Ram was not an option. Dodge has not made a North American pickup since about 2012+-.

I wish Toyota came in with a 3/4 ton truck.But if you had totalled Chevy / gmc they would have 29% of the market, ahead of ram,who makes a fine truck btw just saying.

I am now on my second Toyota Tundra. After having my first for 16 years and almost 200,000 miles on it. I never had any trouble when towing my 21′ travel trailer and fully loaded on the inside. Then my wife got a new vehicle. So I felt it was time to up-grade. So I bought another Tundra and haven’t had any trouble in the now going on 3 years of having it. I feel if something works well like that why not do it again! And it didn’t cost as much as the competitors and had just as many options and some of them were better as well.

I have towed a travel trailer in just about every state in the U.S. since 1983….a lot of years and a lot of miles.
It took many years and miles to discover the best possible vehicle….TOYOTA !!!
After hundreds of thousands of miles with absolutely no breakdowns Toyota is the winner !

In the earlier years Ford, Chevy , Chrysler and Jeep have left me at the side of the road
with my travel trailer waiting for emergency service.

TOYOTA has never let me down…..quality and reliability makes me one happy camper.

As my uncle always said….Patty, always buy the best and never be disappointed!!!

Our 30 ft Everlite is no problem for the Tundra. The 5.7 l engine pulls it effortlessly, and we get a quality truck that the others just don’t measure up to.

2011 Ford F350 SRW diesel crew cab long bed pulls our 40′ Sabre 5th wheel like it’s not even there.

Henry

2017 RAM 1500 with 5.7 Hemi & tow package.

Pulls a used 2011 Jayco RD19 (about 4500 lbs factory weight.)

Proven and time-tested V-8 engine, Very comfortable and smooth ride with coil springs.

Non-cluttered dash and controls.

All control knobs are round which are easy to use with gloves on.

I pull a 2016 32 foot crossroads z1 travel trailer with a 2018 Nissan Titan. The titan has a 5.6 liter gas engine. I started pulling the camper with a 2007 Dodge 1500 , the Nissan handles better and gets better gas mileage. Nissan can tow up to 9200 lbs. I am happy with the Nissan.

I have owned the three major brands of trucks Chevrolet, Ford, and Dodge and have had the best mileage and performance from General Motors products. We own a 3500 dually and pull a 40′ fifth wheel across country.
With Ford came engine/transmission problems and Dodge came steering problems. I keep up the preventive maintenance and do pre trips before and during our trips.

I hope you were not asking this question to know the truck brand you tow with. I voted that I have a Chevy. Our Chevy is our toad we tow behind our motorhome.

Chris kiser

Just bought a 2019 – 3500 Dodge Ram for towing a toy hauler.

Patti Lounsbury

2004 Ford 350 King Ranch edition we call Beast pulling a 36 ft 2015 Crusader 5th we named Beauty. Beast moves along like there is nothing behind him uphill and we ride in total comfort. (And we bought the Ford used in 2016)

I have been pulling campers of one sort of another for over 30 years. I have driven Fords, dodges, and Chevy’s. I have no problem shelling out a few extra dollars to buy a Chevy. I will not go back to anything else. Ford used to have a good motor in the International, but that is long gone. Dodge has never had anything that comes close to the Chevy. Sure, if you build up whatever you have, you can get more horsepower or more torque. But nothing comes close to the overall truck. Most people I run into bought the cheapest truck they could find that would pull their camper. They are also the ones you see parked on the side of the road. Do yourself a favor and at least check out the Chevy’s before you buy a Dodge or a Ford.

Mel Daley

2014 Ford F350 Deisel Lariat pulling a 40 Keystone Cougar 5th wheel and a 12′ Utility trailer with a Can Am UTV Turbo unit. Live in Colorado so lots of pulling in the mountains. Extremely reliable pulling power in the Mountains. On flat land I can cruise 75mph in Co and 80mph in Utah. Looking to add an additional gas tank to up total fuel from 36 gallons to about 66 gallons, less gas stops on long hauls. As I tell my friends I have always had a Ford, cars and trucks. Love em so much I married a Ford! My wifes maiden name is Ford!
