On a budget - is it possible to get an older pickup that effectively handle a 1,500 to 2,000 lb camper? If so - any recommendations?

Thanks, Dan

I would think you should be able to find an older two wheel drive 3/4 - 1 ton with some miles on that would do the trick. Look for a standard with a larger engine. If you are out west or down south you should find one in pretty good shape for that kind of $$. good luck. Scotty.

Hi Rogersdan,

I use to have a mid 1990's F-250HD with the 460 and auto trans. Mine had everything (bags, rancho's, camper tie downs, hitch, new tires and a new trans). I sold it for around $6,500 but it was turn-key camper ready. If you can find one similar you will have good camper hauler.

The southwest is a good area to look for older used trucks not as much rusting out of the bodies, and there are lots of trucks.
