Prices of everything have gradually crept up as we steadily printed more money than we have backing for - and THAT bubble is about to burst - horrendously, catastrophically...

My 2006 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty CTD listed at 40,000. We got it with employee pricning at about 30,000. I priced a King Ranch Ford F350 PSD at the same time it was well over 55,000. Didn't even look at a GM product. We parted ways years ago.

I looked at a F350 for $52,000 sticker or a Mustang Cobra $52,000 also. Don't think I need either. Now some of the price on the truck you can thank the government and the tree huggers.

The Ford dealer a few blocks away has fully dressed F450 for just over 80 big ones. It will likely be leased, I can't see making payments on that for the rest of my life.

I got my '07 Dodge Ram 2500 (bought used) for $34,900! Has the 6.7L Cummins, adjustable pedals, jake brake, gps radio w/ back-up camera.......Have had it only for two months and can't even tell when I pull my 25' Joey Lite. And yes the stealerships are very proud of the diesels. Guess cause they last ten times longer than the wimpy gas trucks!

Man, Y'all scare me with prices like you're talking ! Last new vehicle we bought was in '96, a new Dodge P U. Decided that was the last new vehicle of any kind I was going to buy. Now everything we own is paid for including the house,wife's '96 Chrysler Mini van, my '96 F350 Dually diesel and our '92 HR motor home. All were bought used in very good condition and continue to give us great service. However, let me say thanks to everyone who over the years continued to buy new... I drove tractor trailer for an auto parts manufacturer for 22 years then went on my own in expedited freight (mostly auto parts), so through y'all buying new you put bread on our table and a roof over our heads.

Was at the Chevy dealer this week to get a 11' brochure....They only sold 4 diesels 11's so far and they have to be ordered....And this was a huge dealership. I can build a 'cheapoo one (diesel) for a hair under 50k for a 2500 series. ???? The saleman printed me out a 30 page handout with all the options available...I would know where to start...

They had a very clean 2001 3500 all tricked out to tow a 5'er (43k miles) for $19,000. 2 wheel drive/ duelly....It was super clean....

The cost of a new truck and trailer was the reason we went with our motorhome back in 2005. It was less cost to go that way than to get a new truck and fiver. No regrets, we still have our old '96 truck for me to get to work with and haul stuff when needed and are very happy with the mh for camping. Next vehicle we get will be one that can be pulled behind the mh. For now we enjoy towing the motorcycle behind the motorhome, but during early spring and late fall it would be nice to have an enclosed vehicle to run around with while camping.
