My 2014 ford f150 ecoboost pulls my Flagstaff super lite 27rlws like a champ -have not been in the mountains yet though.

I also have bought 2 6.0's because people shy away (read: cheaper). I also factored in potential cost to Bulletproof, and made sure it could haul what the wife is looking at (15k Fiver). We ended up with an 06 Dually with under 40k miles.

So many diesel forums out there that you can read and learn about. Knowledge, maintenance, and acceptance of the engine's shortcomings will leave you with a better experience with the 6.0.

Just for the payload capacity, I'd choose the 6.0 over the EB for the OP's stated purpose of a possible 5ver/Longer TT.

Wow! After reading the comments I would skip the Ford 6.0. Let someone else take the risk.

How soon do you want to get the 5th wheel? Let that be the deciding factor of when you need to get a new TV. While this is a good time to get a 5th wheel it is also a terrible time to sell you old TT.

I wouldn't mind getting a 5th wheel myself, they just won't fit into the type of camp sites we like. I am afraid to go looking at them as well, might come home with one.

I fully understand the not wanting to go and look at a 5er; we did, and did come home with one!
