New Tow Vehicle

Well, I broke down today and purchased a Ford F-150 XLT.

I still have the Nissan Pathfinder and it does OK pulling the trailer on flat ground but a little incline and it really struggles.

I must say that I do like the looks of the Ford.

another reason why we recommend a v-8 for pulling a full-height trailer.
living out West, a regular v-6 would quickly be overmatched.

i have a friend who owns a 19' HTT, who thought he could pull it in the Sierras, with his v-6 Pilot. after one trip, he decided that he would use his Silverado from now on.

your towing experience will be way less stressful.
Congrats on a great choice.
