This is an interesting thread, having just bought a truck to haul a NL10-2 camper. Having always been a Ford guy and preferring diesels, the decision for me was how much truck do I need, f350 or f450, both dually? I ended up buying the f450, for the 6,000 lb payload. I will also tow a small boat over mountain passes with the camper on, and the f450 gives me more capacity. My offroad adventures will mostly be limited to dirt roads at least for now, but I like reading about others’ exploits with their rigs.
