We have a WD45 that We would like to haul to shows and to do work.
The max distance would be 300 mi.Two to three times a year. I bought a car hauler Mfg by PJ. It is a 7000 gvw trailer. I believe itís a 60/40 type. We will be looking for a pickup next year and would like some suggestions on what kind of truck to buy. We are looking at a dodge extended cab 1500, 318 with tow package. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Doesnít have to be a dodge.

I have a half ton ford and have pulled similar loads. On level ground it does well, and it pulls hills ok, just a lot slower. A 3/4 ton truck makes a big difference. I have borrowed a neighbors and it handles the load, both pulling and stopping much easier. Make sure the trailer has brakes is the most important, any truck can get the load going, but you need to stop it too.

I haul 45 on a 16 foot utility with 2-3500 axles. Pull with a '02 Chevy with tow package. Trailer brakes are a must! Whatever the tow. If you have ice....stay home.

Whatever truck you decide to get make sure it is a minimum 3/4 ton or higher. I hauled my WD-45 with my (very) old Chevy 300+ miles and was glad I had the smarts to get the 3/4 ton. You don't realize how much that stuff ways until you start hauling. A 318 would be good for every day use but you will be beating it if you were to use it frequently.

Just MHO, but you are working with the minimum equipment that will be required. If you live in pretty flat country you won't be in too bad of shape. But, let the weather and road conditions get marginal, or decide that you want to have a plow, mower or other stuff with you, you will need more truck and trailer.
