We are being dragged, kicking and screaming, towards ordering a new truck.
What we want is simple, a 3/4-ton, extended-cab pickup, probably a Ford, capable of hauling a gooseneck trailer. Doesn’t exist.
Dealers carry striped-down work trucks or fancy, 4-door, leather-seated, lux wagons.
The used market has a few. If the price is reasonable, the mileage is not. We don’t need an old, high-mileage truck with problems. We have one of those.
New or used, the last time we had the towing package added after-market, the mechanic punched a hole in the gas tank.
Fortunately, unlike ISO a suitable date, or ISO a suitable horse, we can have a suitable truck made to our specifications, with the towing capacity dyed in the wool.
We are looking at the options and girding our loins to enter the
lion’s den dealership.
Thank you for reading,
