I did the math for my primary TV for the year. I only drove it 8900 miles. 2800 were towing the TT. 1100 were towing the boat. 100 or so were towing a dump trailer. I think that works out to about 45% of the annual miles being with something on the hitch. It's a one ton truck. I could get by with a properly equipped 1/2 ton and good WDH for the TT. A compact pickup, even a 4 cylinder, would pull the boat. However, those 6 short trips I pulled the dump trailer I had between 12k and 15k behind me. I needed a big truck.
