The trailer will be a 5th wheel.
The Diesel for around $50k but I can get the big V8 for $44K. Help!
Where are you from? Find a volume dealer luke Dave Smith or Dennis Dillon in ID and you can step into a tradesman with WA cummins and a few amenities for 43-46k.
I bought my 2015 6.4 hemi when there was only 2500 cash back and paid 40k for 4x4 Bighorn with backup camera and a lot of nice features. Dave Smith will even pick you up at the Spokane airport. D.S. is also a GM dealer.
Food for thought, if going diesel you might want to look into a 3500 SRW for that extra payload. Most decent sized 5er will max your payload on a 2500 diesel.
