6.7 L diesel OR 7.3L gas

Has anyone gone from a 6.7L diesel to the 7.3L "Godzilla" gas engine for towing? I am looking for Airstreamers that have experience towing with both diesel and a 7.3L gas. Thanks in advance if you have any experience to share towing with the 7.3L gas engine.
I have a 30' International, so not a light trailer, and my bed is usually full with 2 Honda generators, firewood, fuel, camp chairs, hiking gear, recovery gear, etc. so I like having that payload of a Super Duty.
I currently have a 2016 Ford F250 with 6.7L diesel, which tows like a dream, but am nearing the end of the extended warranty. Just had to replace DEF heater sender under warranty. This one piece would have cost over $900 if not covered under warranty. I read horror stories about the potentially expensive repairs on these new diesel engines, plus I am kinda of tired about worrying about filling DEF, regeneration cycles, emptying water separator, replacing both fuel filters every 15K, etc. Now that the 7.3L engine is available, would it be a comparable tow engine to the 6.7L diesel?

Have you checked out TFL truck site? They have a whole episode on the 7.3L engine. If you do a search you will see how this truck does up the Ike gauntlet.

Yes, I saw that video early last year, one of the things that made me think about the 7.3L.
