I have drove nothing but diesel Ford 4x4 platforms since 1970.My trucks have always towed almost as many miles as not. If you are towing something heavy,there is nothing to discuss.

You and you alone can answer this question...it gets talked about so much in here and the conversation usually gets as passionate as everybody's love/hate relationship with the different brands of trucks.....you tow in mountains, I tow on land so flat you can see deer 100 miles away, so any opinion I give you is not at all relevant to your situation. Obviously what you have is not working for you and you aren't happy with it, so your own testimony is the best!

I suggest neither,change direction and go F-350 Dually. There's just something about a truck with wide hips.

Plus looking down the road in the future should you later choose to go larger on the next RV your all set and ready to go.

Of course you may want to also take a good hard look at the F-250/350 with the 6.2 under hood. The thing to keep in mind with the 6.2 is that it makes its power in the higher RPM range. But it does deliver impressive performance with a savings of approximately $7500 over the. Most of the diesel.

My only recommend is to stay clear of the stroker 6.0. When I had mine I was quite disappointed with towing mileage. It was stout enough but only got 13 empty and 8 towing. I went Cummins and haven't looked back. Have never been Dodge's biggest fan but it's the only way to get the big 6...

I drive a 2011 F250 CC diesel RWD long bed and while I love the truck please keep in mind that the diesel is a $9,000 option. I hope that I can always drive a diesel pickup?

Diesel, as far as my opinion goes everything should be diesel. Next car will be diesel.
