We were looking at an F250 turbo diesel but now I'm wondering if we want to look at a one ton. The only problem is we have to use the tow vehicle for our local sled and driving a one ton around town is crazy. 3/4 ton is bad enough but manageable. But I don't want to haul right at capacity either. I like safety margins. We looked at some really nice units today, but they were 11,000 lbs dry weight. Almost too heavy empty. So, do you go with a slightly smaller unit and the smaller tow, or are we going to wish we had every extra inch of space?
