The Right Car for Me | TrueDelta

I have looked into Ford Excursion and Ram 1500 trucks.
My requirement is to tow a Winnebago minnie 2200ss (dry weight 4,900 lbs, GVWR 7,000 lbs) in and around Colorado (think: IKE Gauntlet) in the winter.

Priorities: Towing / Powertrain performance / Reliability & durability

Will consider both new and used cars
Maximum mileage: 180000
Maximum age: 15 years

Maximum price: US $ 18000

I would go with the Dodge, either the Hemi or Diesel, It would be more than adequate for the Winnebego and wouldn't kill you on gas when your not towing, plus they have the best ride out of all the full size pickups. Excursion is to big, doesn't drive as nice and horrible gas mileage.

1/4 ton is going to be worn to shreds hauling an RV (other than a little popup) - transmission will give out fast

You need at least a 1/2 ton with a towing package
