I agree with the above responses. A 250/2500 will be your best option. If you're not towing it that often, I doubt you will need to go with a diesel, so you can save some dough there. The problem with 1/2 tons is they don't have a large cargo capacity. With 1100# of tongue weight, you will be close even with the bed of the truck empty and nothing in the trailer.
