I guess time will tell.

Even tho you say your not thinking of upgrading your camper I sure would up grade the truck to at least a 3/4 ton just in case. You start looking at half ton diesels your price most likely more than a 3/4 ton and also the numbers go down due to weight of diesel. Good luck on what ever choice you make. Later RJD

Buying a new TV...lots to consider...

I do believe the new 2020 Chevy 2500’s have lower bed sides to avoid one of the issues you are talking about. Just one more thing to look at

Good point. The main reason for me looking at the 1/2 tons are the height of the bed rails. Ever since 1986 I've only owned 1-ton dually's (for my business), and my current 3/4 ton truck. Even had a 1965 F500 years ago with an 352 interceptor motor. Cool, powerful gasser!



I do like the bigger trucks.

I'll check that out. Thanks! It's amazing how trucks have sooo much variety now-a-days. Mind boggling...
