    I want to pull a 26' long 2006 travel trailer (part time). I mostly will be driving an F-150 for work but want to pull the trailer for vacationing. I have been looking for a 1997 F-350 Power Stroke 7.3 and have been told to stay clear of trucks between 2003-2010. New is not an option at this point unless I win a raffle. I have also wondered whether a gas motor would handle the load especially in the Rockies. Looking for opinions to guide my decision.

    Thanks

    How much does your travel trailer weigh?

    The 6.2 gas is significantly cheaper then the diesel, but wont get quite as good mpg
