Having re evaluated things (and not yet put my money down), I am now looking at a 3500 (not dually as our itty bitty roads in the UK are not fit for purpose..never mind talking about our S**t little parking spaces).

I am looking to down spec to a lone star 6.7 diesel, stick with standard wheels, aisin box, air suspension, 5th wheel prep, running boards and folding mirrors.
This will be a lot more acceptable amount of money and It will give me no problems with pulling whatever 5th wheel I buy (almost).

Thanks for all the input as it has been a massive learning curve, and to think I could get away with a 1500...what was I thinking

We bought from a local dealer for around a 25% discount off MSRP. Diesel Ram 2500 Laramie with the standard stuff - lots of electronics that I am now getting spoiled with, 4x4, etc. We won't be getting a 5th wheel so the 2500 was a good choice. It would have been a 3500 otherwise since the cost difference is pretty minimal. Love this truck! Our gas Tundra was fine for weekends, but we travel a lot more now and the diesel is worth it's weight in gold.

It is always good to buy toward the end of the model year and toward the end of the month when both the sales person and the dealer are sweating the monthly goals.

It all depends on where you live. If you're looking for a high quality dealership in the Southeast, go no farther than Akins Ford-Dodge-Ram in Winder, Georgia--just west of Athens. '

Stan Cardiges sold me my F250 13 years ago, and he's a great guy. And they'll pick you up at the Atlanta Airport if needed.

At one time, Akins had over 500 diesel pickups on his lot--more diesel trucks than there were on the ground in most states. He carries rollbacks, wreckers, utility beds and other specialized trucks in stock.

Good choice. Love my 3500.
Good luck on your future travels.
