Selecting the Best Pickup Truck for Your Travel Trailer

Want to travel the open road and see where your vacation leads you?  One of the best ways to see the sights across America is with a pickup truck and travel trailer.  If packing up the family for a memorable road trip is on your agenda this summer, make sure you have the right pickup truck to pull your “home away from home.”

What to Look For:

One of the most essential qualifications for a pickup truck is the towing and payload capacity.  If you already own a travel trailer or have one in mind, you need to make sure that any truck you’re considering will be powerful enough to pull it successfully.  You can find a truck’s limits for towing and payload capacity in the owner’s manual or online informational listing.  Be sure to include another 2000 pounds to cover all the items you take with you inside the camper.

If you’re planning to tow a fifth wheel, you need to make sure the truck can handle supporting the hitch weight as well as the tow weight of the fifth wheel.  Qualified trucks will have greater payload and towing capacity.  It will be much easier to install everything you need to haul a fifth wheel if you can purchase the truck with optional equipment made for this specific purpose.

Of course, since you and your family will be riding in the pickup truck, you should consider size, comfort, and desired options.  Along with features such as upgraded stereo systems, extensive navigation software, heated seats, and of course–cupholders, many of today’s pickup trucks provide charging outlets in the cab and electrical outlets in the bed.
