ADVICE PLEASE: 3/4 or 1 Ton Pickups and Big Dogs
Our TV is a Sequoia, and we have to watch what we take in order to stay within GVWR and max towing rating. As our next trailer will probably be heavier and bigger (surprise, surprise), we are thinking that our next TV should be a pickup, probably diesel. That way we would be set for a traditional or 5th wheel unit.
We need the back seat area to be able to accommodate our greyhound. This entails enough room to move around and stretch, and needs to allow her to get in and out on her own. We looked at the Dodges, but the folded-down seats were so high that I don't think she could get up and down on her own. the salesman told us that the seats were not designed to be owner-removed, so that strategy seems to be out.
Anyone using a pickup TV and taking a long-legged dog that is too heavy to lift? Suggestions?
