Probably not ever unless you do a lot of camping and not then probably

X2! I buy vehicles because I want that vehicle, plain and simple.
Thats the same reason some people buy Corvettes instead of Chevettes!

X2. I sometimes think my 3500 is a Corvette the way I get off the line. It's like the extra fuel tank in truck, there is no way I'll ever make that money back. But I sure do like my 3500 diesel Silverado

Diesel trucks

The one thing I can tell you is to tread them off before the factory warranty is up. Diesel trucks can be very costly to repair. I do agree with they are good pullers.

iv'e got an 03 3500 ram with the 5.9 cummins, i could not imagine towing a 34ft cedar creek 5ver with a gasser. the thing would be screaming.

as far as repairs well like anything else mechanical preventative maintenance.
goes along way.

and it sure helps being a heavy equipment tech

Nope...I drive a Corvette . But I can relate...someone asked me what my gas mileage was (I'm not stock). I couldn't tell them. Never checked. That's not why I bought it, lol.

The day I brought it home...also happened to be the day I found out they didn't make fifth wheel hitches for it, lol.

Making memories, that's what it's all about. I love my Silverado, I love camping. I don't worry to much. My Silverado sure does pull my camper great, probably won't ever get back what I paid for camper and truck.
