I recently traded my 6.8L gas V10 in for a 6.7L diesel. My V10 pulled it well, the diesel pulls it even better. Just went on a short trip (only 400 miles) over Thanksgiving with it and what a difference, from power to mileage.
Trailer pulls great, you will probably find that the pin weight will be more than you counted on, trailer axles pretty far back and not a lot of weight behind them makes for the heavy pin, especially if you load up the basement. My pin last scaled at just over 2K.

Thanks RhoZeta... yeah I am going to have a load when we take off for a camping trip, I did figure my pin at GVWR of the 5er, still within the limits, but still a load. Thanks for ur input, and Merry Christmas.

That is probably the best idea, if you figure 20% @GVWR That will easily cover it all with room to spare. I am currently scaling right at 20% pin, checked it loaded lightly and loaded heavily.
