Default First Truck - What to get?

Hey. First time on the forum, but browsing it for the last while. I am looking into getting my first truck in a month or so, and would like to be well knowledge on my choice.

I am looking for a daily driver, but I will be towing a trailer(6x10, with 3 dirt bikes in it) and going on long trips through the summer. I live in Canada, so it is important this truck can handle snow, and weather of all kinds.

I am mainly looking into a Ford Ranger, Ford F-150, or Dodge Dakota. Of course, since it is my first truck..and first vehicle(that should give you an idea on my age..) I need it to be older. Perferrably 2000 and up. Crew cab? Would be nice, or even Ex-Cab.

So, theres my info. I am trying to get a take on which one would be best to get. I'm hoping to get a lot of different opinions..and not too many biased ones. Which truck would you recommend? I know the F-150 is the biggest of them all..but which is most reliable? Oh, and I prefer V6 right now.

Any thing you guys can tell me about these trucks to widen my knowledge would be excellent. Thanks!
