Well, here she is. Our new truck ended up being a Nissan Frontier, four-wheel drive, king cab, short bed, cruise control, blah blah blah. We'd thought about other trucks and we did weeks of shopping before we landed this one.
It had almost all of the features we wanted in a tow vehicle for our travel trailer. It has lots more power than our old truck, and lots more room in the cab. Because we do so much camping in National Forests which are located in very isolated places, we've often had the necessity of four-wheel drive. Our old truck had it, and it saved our butts on a number of occasions. There was no way we could get a new truck without it, so that was very high on our list.
So far, we're very happy with the truck. It's quite nice and I'm looking forward to hooking up the trailer to it and taking it on a long trip.
