Really? For what year manufacture of the Dodge/Ram trucks platforms? Have you investigated the design of these trucks. Were is your experience on vehicle design?

IF I should ever purchase a motorhome it would be a diesel oil burner with a rear engine.

Your opinion is as valid as mine.

Carry on

They'll all work great for your needs. Test drive then all and you'll know which one to get. When I was going from my 1/2 ton Chevy (for exact reasons your looking) I drove them all and really liked the Ram 6.4 so that's what I bought.

Same, I drove the big 3, didn't bother pricing the GM product because it completely turned me off.... Priced the Ford and the Ram and discovered that the Ram was nice in some and lesser in some ways compared to the Ford but the pricing came out strongly in favor of the Ram. Plus... That HD backup camera.....

I really wish I had the Ford tailgate step and factory bed extender. But I'll heal in time

Larry ~ if you had the Rambox option, you would have received a bed extender that can be used for a bed divider as well.
The Rambox option is great as the ramboxes provide a great place to store all those things that tend to float around inside the cab or lay in the pickup box itself.
When I looked for mine 6.4, purchased used w/about 20,000 miles on it only sought the 2500 4x4 w/low gears and Rambox option and super pleased in every way possible. And being an 'old codger' getting into the box on a 2500 is made easy by the additions of a Bestop TrekStep Rear-mount Truck Bed Side Step TrekStep Rear-mount. I love the step!

Motorhome

[QUOTE=Dakota 1120;2305847]I have a towed camper, not a motorhome but know some who have a gas motorhome and claim they would never buy another because the engine is in the front and extremely noisy when driving it. Just what I've been told.

The Ford gas is not noisy. 6 speed trans. I think the rear diesel is a very long motorhome, if that's what you want.
