I have yet to figure why your comparing Ford diesel prices to your Chevy gas truck. Fords seem to cost more than Chevy. Why, who knows. I paid $47k for a moderately equipped 2014 Chevy 3500 diesel. Can't hardly by a Ecoboost F150 for that.

As far as your defending not needing a diesel, I can understand your point. Per your own words on another thread, you haven't towed for years, didn't tow your own camper to it's seasonal site, and don't plan on towing for years. Of course you have no need for a diesel. Some of us do, and can easily justify the cost.

I will be towing the camper next year, probably 3-4 times... Then in 2017 we don't plan to be seasonal anymore. That being said the new unit is only a couple hundred lbs more then my old unit. My gasser had no issues with the old unit.

I think you could find the same optioned diesel as your truck for 45k with ease. I paid around 46kUS for my dually diesel. A chev fully loaded, leather and all options was on the lot for 48kUS and that was not dickering on the price or incentives. My neighbour just bought a 2011 Ram 2500 5.7 hemi with 140k miles on it for $6000cdn. This may be an extream but the same truck with a diesel is going to get you 34k easy.

Dang! For that price I'd even consider buying a goat. I don't know what the exchange rate is right now, but it would be even less in US currency.
