New truck thoughts

I currently have a 2004 f150 and am looking to upgrade. What likes and dislike do you have with your tow vehicle? Looking at 250/2500 hopefully.

I have a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 4WD 6.7/Auto with factory tow package

It does what I want and I'm happy with it. If I needed a new truck I'd look at a Ram again.

What are you towing?

I have a 2017 F250 with the towing package. It uses the new plug system without the rails. It also has a backup camera with a laser at the top rear of the cab making hitching up to a fifth wheel a breeze. It has plenty of torque and tows my Endurance 3556 without any difficulty. I love the truck.

I have a F150 and pull a Kodiak 30' Travel Trailer and have no problems. I have a small V8 also. The pulling power is there but not uphill. The trailer only weighs 5300lbs dry weight and 6000lbs loaded. I have only 70,000 miles on the truck. It would be perfect if it had a turbo v6 or a 5.0 V8.
