Granted, a HDT would be the best possible tow vehicle. But I want something easy to drive once I get to my destination. Even a pickup is difficult to get into some areas, but I can't imagine driving a HDT around for sight seeing.
Now, a HDT with a Smart Car on the back would be the best of both worlds. But for the average 5th wheel trailer, a 3/4 or 1 ton truck should be plenty sufficient......1 engine to maintain, I vehicle (plus trailer) to insure, and the pickup can be used as a grocery getter when at home.
