I want an economical pick-up that can pull a 3500kg trailer - what do you advise?

I need an economical van or pick-up that can pull a 3500kg trailer. What's your advice?

The Nissan Navara has the lowest advertised fuel costs of any pick-up on the market. It will also tow up to 3.5 tonnes: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/nissan/navara-np.../

The Ford Ranger should also be on your shortlist: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/ford/ranger-2011/

Both the Ford Transit and Volkswagen Crafter will tow up to 3.5 tonnes, but you’ll probably need to fit a tachograph if you plan to use it for business: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-news/comment/do-you-need.../
