    I started out with a 1/2 ton and grew out of it in under a year. I would most definitely recommend you buy a 3/4 ton.

    A 1/2 ton will pull it.

    A 3/4 ton or larger will pull it easier, longer, and safer further down the line!

    What are you gonna be hauling? If it is just a couple of walkbehinds, I would say to stay with the 1500. If you are using a couple of larger riders, you could still use the 1500 (I did for a little over a year) but a 3/4 ton will be better. Make sure you have brakes on the trailer regardless of which truck you get.
