Best light weight pickup toad
DW and I just bought a 04 Itasca Sunrise, Workhorse W22 chassis. Both of us are recently retired educators and looking forward to traveling our wonderful USA and Canada. I am sure I will have loads of questions for you all as we progress and get to know Tassie better. One big question - we have a 750 Honda Shadow we want to take with us, and have been looking at all kinds of options to carry it and also have a toad. Thought of a hoist, trailer, Tandem dolly, or pickup and bike in the bed. Given our finances (those power hoists can put you back a ton, and from what I've heard, give Tassie a case of too light front feet), and Tassie's limit of about 5000 towing, and 500 tongue weight we are leaning to the pickup. Other options and ideas are welcome, but if we go with the pickup do you all have any ideas of the best lightweight pickup for the job? Couple more requirements - 4x4 necessary as we are fisherfolks, and crew cab because we want 4 comfortable seats. From my bit of research it seems the Colorado/Canyon is the lightest (but maybe not the best), with an older Tacoma next. Am I in the ball park?
