We also bought a honda minivan last year and I remember thinking "darn it, why not have a diesel in this and get me 25-35mpg's?!"

So...in October you will be getting your Airstream and Tundra. I bought my Tundra in October 2008 and I bought my Airstream in October 2012.

Thumbs up TV is a Ram Cummins

I tow a 25' FB FC with a 2012 Ram Mega Cab 2500 6.7L Cummins diesel 4x4 Laramie. It tows much better (especially throughout the Rocky Mountains) than my previous 2002 GMC Denali 6.0L Quadrasteer gas P/U. Going up and down the passes is now seamless with the diesel and it's exhaust brake. The Denali 6.0L gas engine was as little stressed going up the higher passes even with its 4.10 gearing.
However, in the Winter one needs to use anti-gel fluid in the diesel fuel in temps below 20F to ensure a reliable running diesel engine.
