New from Houston - Need Advice on getting a truck or SUV

Hey guys,

I'm new in the truck game and am looking for a daily driver that is somewhat fuel efficient. The reason I'd like a truck, suv, or van is because I one day want to tow a 5x8 trailer and need to upgrade from this camry. I want something reliable and used (anywhere from 93' on up). I do not know what I should get or what type of motor or fuel.

Thanks!

Rick

You would do fine with any mid size SUV or 1/2 ton pick-up truck. No need for a diesel.

^^ v6 or v8? Would a dodge dakota or something comparable work for me? I'd love to add a camper on the back. I'm not sure if that's what it's called.
