Looking for a truck...

When looking to build a house on wheels, your house becomes a fancy, custom RV of sorts.  These houses are built on standard flat bed trailers.


You need to be able to move one of these around and of course during the build process you need to make many trips to the local Home Depot to buy 2x4s and a host of other materials.  This is where a truck is a good thing to have.  
I've been pondering what kind of truck to get and initially I wanted to get something big and powerful with a monster sized diesel engine, fully capable of towing the finished product.  The house once complete weighs in at around 10,000lbs. and not just any truck will pull that kind of weight.  
Since I don't foresee finishing this project in under two years though, why should I splash out for a fancy rig to tow something that isn't built yet?  Currently I'm looking for a much lower end vehicle which will be able to tow what you see above.  Pretty much any truck can do that.  I'm also not sure that I will ever need that full sized truck since the few times that I will be moving the house, I could just rent or borrow a truck.  

Would be fun to have something like this though...


Current outlook is something a bit more like this...
