Much to my surprise Japanese Light Trucks are gaining momentum for pulling 26ft+ Travel Trailers

When I think of Light Japanese Trucks my mind goes to the old Datsun and Isuzu built Chevy LUV Trucks. [emoticon]

My thoughts too. That doesn't look like any "Light Japanese Truck" I've ever considered. [emoticon]

Yeah, when Isuzu calls it "light", they are talking light in their commercial lineup.
Here's the US GM version of the same vehicle and we would never call them "Light US Trucks".
Chevrolet LCF Cab-Over

Never called light truck? Most of my of the people I know would call GVWR of 26000 pretty light.

I can see this d!ck swinging contest getting interesting.....
This is where career cab lizards talk about how those little puny class 5&6 trucks are meant for your 7 year old niece to drive around the yard like her Barbie Power Wheels Jeep!

You can't throw a rock around here without hitting one. They are very popular with landscaping companies and you see lots of box trucks too. I can't imagine them ever catching on as a tow vehicle for a travel trailer when a full size HD pickup is better at that specific job in every way except turning radius. There are many other jobs that these trucks excel at but as a personal use tow vehicle, not so much.

I wouldn't call a truck that has a payload capacity of over 8 tons "light".
