Mega Cab is just a few hundred lbs. less than the F-350.

Check what fuel mileage the F-350 6.0 liter gets and compare that to the Cummins. Of course, there are people that will lie to you about their fuel mileage.

You might want to check out the payload on a 3500 Megacab. It is 2,510 lbs. You add a hitch, extra tank, etc., that is not going to leave much till you will be over. Here is a link to the Dodge page, scroll down to bottom and it gives all towing info on the Meagacab.

aseems to me the answer lies with something heavier than a 350 or 3500 series truck. But once past the one ton options everything becomes pricier.

Erics Oiler, I had your truck (see signature), now with the Volvo, I'll never ever look back. Come over to the dark side and feel the power, I never knew towing could be so enjoyable. 700+ miles a day and not stressed, tired or grumpy.
