    I am looking at purchasing 5th wheel vs a Class A DP. Need to TOW vehicle. I talked with my mechanic about the Ford F350 diesel and he said although he is a Form man he would not buy one. He told me to go with the GMC 3500. HE said that they are having a lot of problems with the F350. He said he is not sure if the newer ones are fixed but wouldn’t take a chance until they have a proven track record. How about some of you that owns either. Can you help me with some info? Thanks

    What type of problems did he say the ford was having. I'm hearing a lot of good things from people.(all ford owners ;) ). Test drive all of them ford, chevy, dodge. You'll be able to tell what suits you best. Heck if Chelse can drive a ford they can't be all bad. :laugh:

    Hi Wolfox, Ford had some problems with the 6.0L when it first came out, as far as I know it been fixed, Chevy has had injector problems with the DuraMax also, I think they have it under control, as both are new engines it take some real world experiences before all the bugs are found and gotten. As Shadow posted drive them all and see which one you really like, all three make a good trucks so see which you like best and go that way. :) :laugh: :cool: :bleh: ;) :approve:

    Sorry Chelse I just couldn't let that one go by. Speaking of new fords, I heard your not going to need a break controler. You plug in your trailer and it's all tied in to the abs breaking system. Wife won't let me look at the new trucks yet, maybe next year. Pulled the 396 out of that chevelle and put a 454 in it. :laugh: It's going to make a hell of a toad one day.
