    I'm kind of in the middle on what to do concerning a truck...My grandpa said that it would be a hassle unhooking and hooking the tralier all the time, when I want to go somewhere without it. What do you guys think? If it wouldn't be that much of a hassle, I could sell my car and get a higher priced, nicer truck...Any thoughts?

    Do you mean you currently have 2 vehicles, a car and a work truck that stays hooked up?

    Hooking up a trailer is not a hassle at all...I do it everyday. You get used to it.

    No, currently I have a 92 Cutlass. I am taking over my grandpas business next year, so I am going to need a truck. If hooking and unhooking the trailer is a hassle, then I will keep my car and get a cheaper truck. If it isn't a hassle, I can sell my car and get a more expeisive truck...

    Trailer takes no time at all, maybe at first its hard to back right up under the ball but after some pratice you hit it every time and it takes 5 min. It is important to have a good reliable truck because that last thing you want is a broken truck. Spend more money on your truck.
