My love my 1500 Silverado 6.2 L with the max tow package. I did not want a diesel so bought the largest gasser GM makes. It will pass anything but a gas station. I hate trying to pull into a gas station to normally the one diesel pump they have and wait for the cars in the way to move. I would like to add a aux fuel tank someday since I only have about a 200 mile range on a full tank pulling the TT.

I purchased my F250 gasser a few years back for hauling cattle 2-3 times per year plus the normal haul of dirt or compost. It is perfect for that duty. I purchased a 2015 Rockwood Ultra Lite 8289WS 5er (8300 dry wt) this week. I am wishing I had coughed up the money for the diesel now. I haven't been over the mountains yet and it does feel the weight going up a steep hill. Pulls fine so far though and once I am up to speed, she keeps 60-65 pretty easy, although it kicks up to some pretty high rpm's when it downshifts on a steep hill. I am not worried about getting over the mountains really but I may be going pretty slow to keep the rpm's below 3500. But like I said, right about now that Power Stroke would be nice.

I am averaging right at 9mpg in the small amount of towing I've done so far.

I guess so, if you haven't got the common sense to get a Cummins!

This F350 is perfect for me. Pulls the Work & Play like a champ and now that this camper is for sale, it will pull the 5er we plan to get.

I have a 32

I have a 32' Wolf Pack toy hauler. it's dry weight is 11,950, and loaded it comes in at around 17,500 I was towing it with a Chevy 3500 daully, it had a 12,000 GVW, and a CGVW 16,500. I, was having brake problems. So I traded it in on a 2012 Chevy 3500HD daully which has a lot more hauling capacity. I get better mileage and more pulling power, and better stopping power. With the engine brake it will hold the cruise control to within 5 mph on down hill decents, and pulls the mountains like they are not there. It was a great upgrade.
