I recently purchased a 7x14 Enclosed cargo trailer, double axle, 6'7" interior height, V Nose, 2020 lbs empty weight. Looks very similar to this pic I stole from the internet. I'm looking for recommendations for a suitable tow rig for this. My requirements. Extra cab Pickup or SUV-Must haul 2 adults and a toddler 4wd a real plus Hoping to get 20 mpg when not towing or close to it. Be able to tow at 60-65 comfortably. (I know MPG when towing is going to be crap, so I'm not even going to put a requirement there) 6k budget. I have borrowed 2 different 3/4 tons to move it and here is what concerns me. The Chev K20 has a rather weak 350 in it and you knew the trailer was back there, even when empty. Tended to push a little bit and only wanted to cruise comfortably at about 50mph. I could have pushed it harder but it seemed to be a lot of punishment for little gain. I have also towed it with a 2wd F250 with a slightly stronger 360. This handled the weight no problem, but again, didn't want to go much over 55 with how tall the trailer is. I really would like to be able to cruise comfortably at 60-65 without pushing it. My max load on this isn't going to be much. I'm going to be putting some shelves, a murphy bed, a small water tank, and a camping kitchen setup, along with 2 midsize motorcycles. I doubt I will ever exceed 4500 lbs total, and will more likely be 3500 lbs, but I want to give myself a little headroom. So I'm thinking with the 2 previous tow rigs I have more of a horsepower deficit than a chassis that is not up to the task. I really want to avoid going to a big block for the fuel expense when not towing or diesel because of the crazy buy in cost. TL;DR Would you tow 4500 lbs with a half ton or gasp even a Grand Cherokee, etc? Or should I just bite the bullet and get a 3/4 ton with a stout motor?
