View Full Version : What type of vehicle/trailer should I get?

I've done a lot of searching on this website, but I thought I would go ahead and ask for my specific situation. I currently have a 2005 4.0L V6 Ford Ranger with a 6x10 trailer. I work solo, but next year I'm going to need a larger trailer and I plan on hiring help. I think with the added weight and passenger I will be wanting a larger truck as well. I really like the look of the cabover trucks, but I have a few questions before I get a new vehicle. Also, if it helps, I will have 2 wright standers, a 52" and 36", push mower, backpack blower, and 1 trimmer. All of my driving is under 55 mph.

1. What kind of fuel economy would a vehicle like this get?

2. What will I have to do to make it so my employee can legally drive the vehicle?

Just ask if there is anything else I need to add here. Oh, and I would like my budget to be $10,000.
