Well, a lot sooner than I expected a friend of mine bought my truck and I got a screaming deal on a 2016 f250 supercrew with 30,000 miles

Looks like a gasser too. That would be my choice. 4x4?

Also, I hadn't heard of any flour mills exploding. Looks like a lot of flour on the parking lot there. That will be tough to cleanup.

Yes it is a gasser. I live only a few miles from work and only put 10,000 miles a year on at best. I would have to drive and tow a lot more than that to justify the $$$ on a diesel. And yes itís 4x4, the flour you see is the wonderful lake effect snow we get all winter long in NE ohio. I am already glad I went this route for the peace of mind

Awesome! Good choice. You'll like that trick for sure. I know I like mine a lot!

If the vehicle is new and you're the type to trade off every few years then maybe you can make it work. If you're like me and keep things for a while and like to have things paid off then it's going to be difficult to maintain.

I used to pull my 6600lb (dry), 7200lb (wet/loaded/camper with my Escalade (7800lb towing capacity). It didn't go well. Even though the numbers worked i was wearing things out quickly. I did upgrades galore to try and make things better but at the end of the day I came to the realization that it was just too much.

I now pull that camper with an F350 6.0 Powerstroke. The truck doesn't skip a beat and pulls that camper with no issues (and gets double the fuel mileage my Escalade did when towing). No more white knuckle driving for me.
I agree 100% I was pulling a Rockwood 30ft ultra light, with ecoboost 9500lb max tow, it pulled fine, stopping was an issue. In an emergency stop, the camper pushed the truck. We traded for a 250 powerstroke and a larger 5er, rockwood 2888. Stopping is not a problem even when some fool pulls out in front of me.

Get a 250, be safer.
