High mileage tow vehicle

How many miles have you got on your tow vehicle? Mine just turned 195,000 yikes.

I've got a whole 89,000 on my 1997 F350 4x4 diesel pickup. Sleeps all winter. No snow, no rust.

I just recently traded up a year. Traded my 2003 Silverado 1500 4x4 LT Z71 with 175,000 miles for a 2004 GMC 2500HD LT 4x4 with 150,000 miles. Other than the added power and HD Suspension, and being the interior package was "exactly the same" on both, not much difference. Oh, AND, except for the gas mileage!

I only drive maybe 8,500 miles per year...if that. So I don't cry too much about the gas because I love having the extra power.....and it's paid for.

Traded up my truck of 20 years (1997 F150 4x4, 108,000 miles) for a 2004 F250, 6.0L Powerstroke 4x4 with 122,000 miles a week ago on the same day I brought home our first trailer, 2017 Freedom Express 257BHS. After pulling it home with the F150, I realized my beloved truck wasn't going to last much longer and wouldn't be much fun. I happened across the F250 that was in great shape that was a single owner. It was fate. Looking forward to many happy years pulling.

Keep an eye on the engine. 6.0's are noted for head gasket failure and the only way to pull the passenger's side head is to remove the cab...a real pita.

I recently sold my tow vehicle (2007 Sport Trac) that I had bought new. It had 191,000 miles. I would have kept it longer, but grandchildren being added to the camping family means a larger truck. I bought a slightly used 2014 Heavy Duty Payload F150, 6-passenger cab with only 8500 miles on it.
