Frankly, I'd rather keep the Durango but due to a continuing series of nagging maintenance problems I conclude that it's time for a new(er) tow vehicle.
I'm not a zealot about being within capacity but the Durango is at the margin for RAWR and, by extension, tongue weight. Thinking that we might upgrade trailers by 1000-2000#, I concluded that a truck would be suitable. But there are compromises, as you point out.
Another respondent mentioned an Armada. I'll check it out but suspect the cost exceeds my budget and the RAWR won't meet my future needs.
