Do I really need a 4x4 truck??
So I've been looking for a truck to tow our horse trailer with and ALSO my hubby's 7,500-lb towable RV. So I know what I need in the way of engine, towing capacity, etc. We're looking for something like an F-250 or Dodge Ram 2500, something that could tow either without an issue.
However, I was also restricting my search to 4WD vehicles only, which really puts a strain on our budget (we're trying to stay close to $16k for a used truck with under 60k miles). Most of the ones we're looking at are at or around $20k. BUT the 2WD's that fit the bill are around our price range!
My question is...I'm afraid of getting stuck in a muddy field somewhere with a 2WD vehicle, which is why I was looking at 4WD only. Hubby insists that it's no big deal, if we need help I can always call a tow truck. My question is: in everyone else's experience, could I safely go with a 2WD without issue? It would certainly open up a whole other set of trucks I could be looking at in our price range, that's for sure!!
