I pull a Ford Ranger, regular cab, stick shift with our 8.1 Workhorse motorhome. I equipped it with a lockable fiberglass lid for the bed that can be easily removed if necessary. It is well equipped, lightweight, and gets good gas mileage, and is big enough and quite comfortable for the wife and I. It tows well, all that is necessary is to put transmission in neutral, and ignition key in #1 position. No battery charge wire is necessary to maintain the battery.
