Used Truck Help Needed

Dh and I are looking for a used truck to pull our rv. We are looking at Ford F150, Dodge Rams, and Toyota Tundras. I'm a Honda girl and have never driven anything else so I am WAY outside of my comfort and knowledge zone. Does anyone have a truck they love?

About a year ago we bought an old Ford 150. I don't know the year but it had 160,000 miles when we bought it. It runs fine and is sort of fun to drive. The only issue I have is parking it in certain lots that are tight. My teens like to drive it too.

We have an 01 Ford Excursion that we use. It is diesel and (knock on wood) have never had a problem with it. It is comfortable to ride in and we can carry a lot of stuff inside, including people. Gets about 18 miles a gallon which isn't wonderful, but isn't bad for such a big vehicle.

The F-150 gets better gas mileage than the Ram. Everyone I know who has the Ram says it doesn't get very good mileage, even lower than it's supposed to get.

I have a 2008 F-150 that I love. I was always a sportier car girl, having had two coupes in my driving career. My dad was a truck guy. I think he had 5 F-150 trucks. He bought his last one in September of 2008, and he found out he had terminal cancer a week later. He told me that he wanted me to take his truck since Mom didn't drive then and I'd need to help her out.

I had NO idea I'd love a truck so much. I get 17 miles per gallon in the city, and I got 18.5 on a road trip this summer. Mine is a STX 4X4 V8. At first I thought that the truck was huge, and I didn't think I'd like it. Now I don't think I could go back to a car.
