I just wanted to add one thing to what U said about not starting in the winter. Dodge /Ford/ Chev/ desiels either come equiped with or U can buy the opion of a Block heater which keeps the water warm in Winter and have eleviated most starting problems in Winter. I have had -20 F here and never had a problem starting.
Good Luck To U
Roger

In my F-250 Diesel the heater comes installed period. You have to buy the 110V cable to activate the option.

If you buy a new Chevy 3500 Diesel

Or any other Chevy, get it with everything (especially the oversized power mirrors!) on it from the factory. The only thing you should have to add is a running board. It's pure hell to try to get any add ons at the dealer.

On the other hand, there are a LOT of these big trucks sitting on used car lots! Seems like quite a few people who bought big trucks for "show" now want economy cars for "go"..... so it's the happy hunting ground for people needing tow vehicles.

With a 34' I'd be looking at a 1 ton, period.

I echo Paula's comment. If u havent purchased yet,dont jump on the first thing U see. They are setting everywhere on used car lots. We found our 2001 F350 Used in '02 with 5,500 miles. It sold for about 40k we got it for 28k out the door. It was a FordMotorBuyBack (lemon) Its problem was OPERATOR ERROR. Not even the dealer could find the problem. I fixed it for about a $100 bucks.
HAPPY HUNTING
Roger

We've owned and towed two 34's - towed with a diesell Excursion. Can't imagine towing a 34' with anything less. It's not just power - it's brakes, transmission...
