Thanks for the insight everyone. I would love a newer vehicle but we're pretty much capped out at $20k for a new vehicle so the 6.7 will be out of reach for a few years.

I may just keep my eye out for a 6.2L gas with the features I want. Yeah, it will have to rev in the hills but it will also be my daily driver so even camping once a month would be "infrequent towing".

You may want to drop back to a 2000 to 2002 Ford Superduty with the old 7.3L diesel. These are sought after. The problem is the transmission, but that is easily fixed with a shift kit, transmission oil cooler, synthetic oil and a better torque convertor.

Go with the the 6.7L if all possible. Spend more now to save more later w/repairs. Also, if you're going to invest that kind of money in a Truck, you should go with a 5th. Your overall experience will be improved!

Don't make the mistake I did and settle for any TV. With the right TV, it will pull any trailer, especially a TT if that's what you're set on. I love my TT, but I should have purchased a 5th for many reasons. I know, more truck + more trailer = more money!
