Need help on TV for King of the Road...

We are considering a '98 King of the Road (33ft)...
Not sure of the weight, think it is near 11,000....
I was wondering if I could find a Chevy dual truck with a 454 engine if that would work for short tolls?...
Also have been looking at Chevy 3500 dual Flat Beds, not sure if you could do a 5th receiver because of the bed height??____
Thanks,
Bob & Kathy

We have a 35 ft Northshore 5th wheel toyhauler we tow with a Ford F350 DRW Lariat 7.3L diesel. The trailer dry weight is 11,000lbs plus and I hardly know we are towing it.

I had a '98 GMC with the 454 gas engine. I was very satisfied with the power and it's abilities to tow but the fuel mileage SUCKED! I traded it in for a GMC 2500 diesel and have now traded it for a Dodge 3500 dually with the Cummins diesel. I get 10-11 towing my 16,000 pound fifth wheel and 18-20 bobtail. I will never go back to a gasoline engine tow vehicle.

Thanks, would like to have a 7.3L diesel but the 2000 year is real pricey...
We won't be pulling much, just 200 miles in a year or so...
If we were pulling a lot then would be a diesel...
