Gas vs diesel

I currently have 2013 ford f250 srw with the 6.7 l power stroke diesel engine, long bed which is just a bit to big (long) turns like the queen mary. I have been up the east coast and this summer went west via i-10 then up i-5 to 101 and up the oregon coast, over the mountains from oregon into california and back across i-40 and i-10 home to florida ....... Not one issue and truck preformed great towing a keystone mountaineer 33ft about 13,000 lbs.

I am thinking of moving down to a 2015 ford f250 short bed srw and a gas model, a savings of $8,000.00.

Does anyone have first hand experience with a f250 / gas tow vehicle ? .... Any problems pulling this size trailer ?

Any information is appreciated

I think he is talking about a pickup truck for pulling a 5er, not a motorhome..

I believe the V10 is also available in pickups.

Not in current production. It seems to be limited to the MDT chassis, cutaway chassis and motor home chassis lines.

Personally, I wouldn't go gasoline. They don't pull like diesels do, don't get the economy diesels do, and if you trade in your current truck it having a diesel will increase it's value enough to almost offset the premium.

For me, it was the way it pulls. It's such a nicer towing experience.

It's a very personal choice, but for me it's diesel all the way.
