If you only travel 1K miles/yr camping...save your money on the truck upgrades and live with it.
Dollar for dollar, really can't squeeze enough additional hp from a gas engine to justify the cost and feel a difference when towing that amount of weight.

I agree with this or just save the money and throw a bit more cash at it and go to the diesel but dumping money into the 6.0 is not the way to go.

There are lots of guys doing low boost turbo setups on the 5.3 and 6.0 Chevrolet LS based motors these days. That would definitely get the power up and allow you to tailor it to what you need through the desired boost/power level.
5Psi boost on the 6.0 trucks get you around another +100hp at the wheels and doesn't sacrifice light load fuel mileage.
