    I don't think the Dakota is big enough to haul a horse trailer either, but the Avalanche is. I really like that first F150 and I think it's priced pretty fair too. Looks almost like my truck :]

    HITS, just so you know. I Pickup up my featherlite trailer yesterday. With my 3/4 ton Chevy, I could not even feel the trailer behind me. If you're going aluminum for your trailer, any good 1/2 ton will probably be fine, as long as it has the right gears.

    I have a burb and it tows better than my hubby's pick up...granted its a big block 454, 3/4 ton, but it actually doesn't change gas mileage when you haul...that being said, the gas mileage sucks all the time. We had no problem going freeway speed with 2 horses and a head wind just yesterday. I clocked the mileage with and without the trailer...it is almost exactly the same. Not an easy parking lot vehicle, and don't even get me started on airport parking garages, but arenas...no problem.

    I had mine done about a month ago for $150.

    I had to take my Expedition in for warranty and they gave me a Durango for a loaner. It's no bigger then my old Envoy and that didn't do a good job towing so I don't suspect that the Durango will be any better.

    A friend of mine tows with a Durango, but she has a brand new one with a Hemi, and only tows one horse and locally. If she hauls her daughter long distance, she borrows a heavy duty truck from her dad's car lot. Locally it seems to do okay.

    That's exactly why I insisted we keep my bitty lil Saturn when hubby caved in and bought me my crew cab GMC Sierra. Awesome for pulling a horse trailer and bringing along my kiddos, not good for for general around-town driving!
