If you go truck (of course, I would say go DODGE!) if you're looking at just a two horse you can probably get away with a half ton (mine, as I said, is rated for 9000lbs and is a half ton, but it's then newer, beefier half ton that cost me a LOT of money LOL) but I would stick to the 3/4 tons if you could, and I probably wouldn't look at one that wasn't a 4x4 - but I guess that depends on where and when you'll be using it. Here, you got three feet of snow or three feet of mud so a non 4x4 is useless.
If you can, go for a goose neck - they haul a lot easier then bumper pulls and gives you a lot more maneuverability, and the center of balance is the middle of your truck and not your bumper - a lot easier on the whole rear end of your truck. More expensive, but in the long run, definitely worth it.
