I tow without water so it's a little less. I play some numbers games when I have the whole family. It tows great but searching for fuel every 130 or so miles is nit fun.

Although a diesel is nice for sure, you also upgraded in truck. Part of your nice experience is moving to a 3/4-ton.

Personally, I'd go with a 1 ton diesel. That way, when you come to upgrade your 5er (and you will), you'll have a big enough rig to tow it with. The payload capacity of a half ton and 3/4 ton isn't usually that much different. A 1 ton (any of the big three North American) will suite you fine. With a 1 ton you'll most likely have the option of an engine brake setting as well as the tow haul mode. This year is the first time I had a vehicle with that option and it make driving down long gradients some much easier without pounding the brakes.

My personal vehicle is a 2015 F-150 Lariat Ecoboost with max towing package. I thought I'd pull the 2906ws with it. While I can do that, I figured it would be a much better idea to get Spousal Unit into a diesel, so we could pull through the truck areas -- much more maneuverable than in the gas lanes. Once I talked him into thinking it was his idea, he found a 2014 F-350 King Ranch that's even more loaded with nice stuff than mine.

My truck pulls Steinbaum just fine. His truck pulls Steinbaum like he's not even back there. All's fine in the towing world...
