Every fifth wheeler needs a pickup truck to pull it. For us, the Ford Ranger and Nissan Navara joined a few other options in the quest to find our tow vehicle. This is how we got on.
What we needed
Pickup trucks are commercial vehicles, built for carrying stuff and doing big tasks. We don’t really need most of that; we’re only interested in the commercial aspect for towing our heavy caravan.
Consequently, we’re looking for load capacity combined with a comfortable ride and a decent level of features; a luxury vehicle. How it looks is also a big factor.
