Hi all, we are a kiwi couple around 60 and are coming over to travel your fine country late May. We have already purchased a fifth wheel, but need to find a tow vehicle. The fifth wheel is near San Antonio Texas so if anyone knows of a suitable vehicle that is reasonably priced we would greatly appreciate it.

We have travelled extensively in the UK before and have driven in US but not spent much time there. Looking forward to it and hoping to meet some of you on the road!!

Glad to have you here with us. I'm sorry I can't help you with a tow vehicle. I'm sure someone near there will respond.

Have fun touring this great country. Maybe we'll see you on the road.

Good luck and Happy Trails!!!

Welcome to the forum.

For on-line ideas places like Ebay have several listing for dealers in the SA, TX area. We bought our diesel pickup and picked it up there before picking up our 5er. Best of luck and enjoy the forum, it's a great place to get inside information and personal opinions on almost every facet of RV/RVing.

You wont have any problem finding a truck in Texas. While I was searching for one Texas kept coming up again and again, they like their trucks out there. Seems they always have way more truck than they need, so odds are good a used one will be "gently used".
