Any ideas on pick up truck?

Can anyone give me any ideas on what sort of pick up trucks I can get for the following criteria:

Haul my bike(s) in the bed - priority.
V8 or V6, but has to be fuel efficient, hoping around at least 18 mpg on the streets.
Preferrably manual tranny
I have no preferance on the manufacture as long as their known to be reliable.
I need be able also use it to commute or get groceries, and haul a small trailer once in a while.
Doesn't have to be off-road capable.
Hopefully something around $10-12K, 2000+ and less than 30K mileage.

Any ideas? Thanks.
