Have a couple of Superdutys for sale in the area that we are thinking about going to check out. What are thoughts on the 2003 and 2004 model year superduty with the 6.0 diesel? After a quick google search, some reviews sound scary, BUT it's hard to tell what those people are doing with the trucks too. Our main use would be towing our 31' Keystone Premier bunkhouse (rated at like 7700 lbs or so). Any help is much appreciated!

<2012 many many years of tenting it!
As a followup to my question above...thoughts on a F250 (or really any 3/4 ton) gasser?? Maybe that would make more sense? Our 1500 GMC pulls it grand, but wow does it suck the gas, and the weight is a tiny concern as it's at the top of the scale for 'ok'.
I had a 2500 with the 6.0 gas pulling a 26' Jayco. It did great but drank a bit, I'd bet anything will. It's just part of RVing.
I now have a 2004 Excursion with the 6.0 It was bought new by my dad, it had a few issues early on when he had it but is fantastic now. I know 4 others with 03--07 6.0 diesels and none of them have had a single issue. The trucks are driven a bit.
I'd just ask for the history on the trucks your looking at.
As a former owner of a 04 6.0 and a 06 6.0 and present owner of a 08 6.4 the 04 was the worst truck I ever owned. I have bought 1000 dollar trucks that I got more trouble free miles out of. no they were not tuned or modified in any way atleast the first two and the 04 was trash. not just MO just facts. ask skipnchar he had one briefly.I would look elswhere they are very exspensive to work on so if money is not a problem it might be worth the gamble.
