Dinghy Towing

The wife & I have decided to buy a truck for our tow. Does anyone have any recommendations on what make we should be looking at?

Thanks

Here is a few documents that you can see what is easily towable.

I've used a 2006 Colorado 4x4 and was super easy. I've now traded that in for a 2016 Colorado 4x4. Only difference between setups is new needs battery negative disconnect switch. But I have pulled it without disconnecting with no issues.

I have blue ox tow bar and hidden plate. I use brake buddy stealth as braking system. You will need to choose those items as many options available.

I hook up. Plug 1 harness in. Switch trucks transaxle in neutral and flip battery ground switch done.
