bcintx - You can most certainly suggest that !
chuchster57 - Gas ~ Why? From what I'm understanding, payload numbers stay higher, Correct me if I'm wrong. Also to keep the purchase price down. Cab size - not regular cab, I'm leaning towards extended cab and long bed. 4WD. It will also be my daily driver. An 8' bed with a crew cab will not be fun in most parking lots, I'm guessing with the long wheel base though, it would tow great ? Head Spinning - Yes, I'm getting ready to put a little something extra in my coffee for my head!!
sourdough - Confuse me away! You are correct, intended purpose is for towing. Current RV has a posted gross weight of 4700#'s, 490# tongue weight. I have not however scaled it, to verify these numbers, or for what we normally have in it. That is on my to-do list. Future RV weight? Size? That's the million dollar question ! ! 4X4, cruise, AC, Gasser, at the moment those items come to mind.
$35,000 would be the MAX
