It turns out the original owner of the truck we are buying was a full time RVr towing a 30’ SOB with no problems. Another benefit is that the truck has never seen a winter as they were south during the snow.
There is no 6.4 diesel..there is a 6.7 cummins in the ram..I have had O problems with my O7 ram with the 6.7.. 110,000 miles....and we have 25000 on our 17 ram with the 6.7..and O problems....all these miles are towing our 13 31’ Classic.....you should try one...

Older Diesels for a TV?

6.4L Even itís turbo had a turbo. Remember that ad line?

I donít consider my 2005 Dodge Ram 5.9L 6 speed as what the OP considered as old diesels to me. that would be a clattering 5.9L 12 valve with the Bosch inline pump. Wow.

But darn glad I have a 2005. 196K IIRC.

Time to go camping.
