where you planning to put everything? you are extremely limited on storage. I would plan out what is going to go where and make sure it fits.

clothes, cooking equipment, food, toiletries being the main things inside. outside, chairs, jacks, hitch equipment, basic tools, any games or hobby equipment you may like, bug protection, additional shelter or ground coverings......


If it moves and it shouldn't..... duct tape
if it doesn't move and it should.....WD40
if all else fails .....BFH

Check out an Expedition with the Ecoboost engine. That engine is rock solid and can tow a mountain. The 3.5 EB can out power anything the others you mentioned have unless it is a 6.2, and good luck finding one.

The post-aluminum ones even have decent payload, ~1,700 pounds on the few I've looked at at auto shows.

the expedition can make a great tow vehicle for a trailer <27 feet. Only reason I didn't get one instead of my f150 was the price tag. Lots of options with this vehicle. also means you don't need to drive a POS Chevy so that's a win.
