I am new to the towing world but if I have to buy a new truck every few years to pull my RV 2000 miles a year then I may have to go back to a tent. In this economy I cant see spending $40k on a new ride at this time even though I can afford it. I just dont want to.
I have a 2004 F150 and like you I only tow about 2000 miles a year with our 6000lb TT being about 90% of those miles. I bought the truck 1 year old (in Jan of 05) with 30K and now it has 57K, I only put about 3000 miles a year on the truck and put it in storage during the winter since I have a beater 94 F150 4X4 with 170K HARD miles and a company work truck. The truck handles the camper great, but it should since its rated to tow over 9000lbs. The only problem that I have ever had was 1 rear brake caliper froze up otherwise only preventative maintenance.
