    Hi Everybody, we've had a tent, tent trailer, 12' camper, 29' trailer, and a 28' motorhome. Now we are looking at 5th wheels.

    There is a 04', 32' Dutchman Colorado up here in Seattle for sale for $21,500 (death sale). It is in great shape. There is also a 05' Ford F-250 4x4 Turbo Diesel four door with 25K miles available.

    Does anybody on here have either or both of these? Any pro's or cons?

    Lastly, what do you think would be a fair package offer given the current economy and fuel prices? I'm thinking $35 to $40K for both.

    Thanks, Mike, Issaquah, WA

    P.S. If I buy this package, I'll have a great 03' F-150 4x4 Lariat for sale, 50K miles.

    Hey Mike, welcome to the forum. I wouldn't touch a "05" Ford 6.0 L Power Stroke diesel if it was free. Do a search on this forum for Ford 6.0 L Power Stroke problems. :eek: The Ford diesel 6.0 L power stroke had really bad problems. The older Ford 7.3 L Power Stoke was a good diesel. I' don't know much about the newer "07" Ford dual turbo diesels.
