We went back and forth on the gas vs. diesel thing. I initially considered the 6.2 V8 gasser which is a fine engine, but the more I studied the 6.7L, the more we became convinced. Very happy thus far. We get about 19mpg unhitched; yet to be determined pulling over a distance... It works well for us.

Best of luck in your decision.

Well we just signed the papers today for a new Prime Time Crusader 295RST. Champagne color. VERY HAPPY!. Much more room now. Walk through is scheduled for next week but I won't take possesion until late April. We have a seasonal site up in North West NJ and we will bring it there then. Gives me time to find the correct truck. The F250 is my choice but I would like to see if I can find a pre-owned one before plopping down more big bucks! Can't wait!

Congratulations!!

We purchased our 2012 F-250 (with 50K miles) as a Ford certified vehicle warranted bumper to bumper to 125K miles. Almost went with a certified 2011 F-350 dually, but it would have been overkill. Very happy with our choice.

Good luck and let us know if you plan a Texas trip...

Hi All. Quick question. I am looking at two different F250's that are 2012 leftovers. One is an XL with a 3.73 gear ratio the other is an XLT but the ratio is 3.55. I understand the 3.73 is better for towing but how much difference would you thinbk there would be? I purchased a 295RST dry weight is 8800 pounds. They both have 8 foot boxes. (I would have preferred the shorter bed but there were no leftovers in that size.
Thanks for any advice!
