Most manufacturers still make a base model, like the Ram Tradesman, but they don't sell so lots are filled with the loaded up Laramies that do.

Paid $30K for mine with a $4500 trade-in. Don't need a quad cab, that just means you have to add people sometimes... tsk

Yup, the manufacturers understand what people want/need. Since I've been remodeling my house (for longer than I care to admit), I need the use of a truck fairly regularly. I also need a daily driver to get to work, and I'd prefer to use the same vehicle for both needs. I don't do a lot of towing, so a 1500 sport with a few amenities works well for me.
