Thoughts please gentlemen. Thinking about changing our town runabout for a truck of some sort. Primary reAson is to tow a trailer with boat and need a 2.5 tonne or 3 tonne capacity and to be able to tow for a reasonable distance. Don't want to spend a lot of money so thinking of something reasonably long in the tooth. It will double duty as a weekend shooting / camping / sailing with a bit of school runs thrown. I suppose the default is a Landrover station wagon or Disco Series 2 but their must be better more reliable options out their. Pick up truck has big attraction in that both road tax and parking permits are a lot cheaper, than a Chelsea tractor 4x4. What should I start looking for, and at what stage do they become a waste of money.
