Just make sure your vehicle is rated to tow AND carry the weight of what you plan to get. Keep in mind that it has not been unusual for people to end up with larger (heavier) trailers than they expected. Also, go look at the F350's and get real load capacities from inside the doors. They are often 100's of lbs less than book rating (won't go into details of why, and true of all brands).

That will give you a better idea of what you are really looking at.

If you can get away with gas, do what you want. But if you really need diesel to be in specs, go diesel.
