Decisions, decisions, decisions! Mine is a 06 Chevy 3500 2wd dually with 220,000 miles. Many of those miles have been spent pulling a 12,000lb 5er.
It has had an open checkbook when it comes to maintenance which, not including tires or oil at every 3000 miles, has been about $2000 a year. The engine, bone stock, has been flawless. Driving style is not aggressive at all. Maintenance items have been normal wear & tear bushings, brake pads, a couple rotors, a mirror, a window motor & a radiator.
I don't know how many more years we will stay in this RV game but it does not seem to make sense to trade a perfectly good reliable truck. I figure at some point this will be a great truck to be 'put out to pasture' for somebody who wants what might be a 'classic' by then & needs a dually to carry an ego around in. I don't really like the looks of the new trucks anyway.
