What type of vehicle do you tow with?

I have a 19 foot travel trailer and currently tow it with a Ram 1500 4x4. Gas mileage is terrible with it, about 8 MPG towing. I am thinking about getting a diesel next year, not sure which one I want. I really like the Ford F250. Any thoughts out there? I want good mileage, reliability, and comfort.

The F250 is really nice. I'm a Ford guy myself. Both my grandfather and my dad worked for Ford as I once did. My wife works there now. We pull with our 2006 Ford Explorer. It does a really good job but the milage sucks. I think diesel is the way to go. I hear Ford is coming out with a F150 deisel for 2009. I'll wait to see the numbers on that one.
Here on this site they've been talking alot about the new 2009 F150 and what to expect. It looks like it'll be a winner.
I really like the 250 and the 350 Super Duty. Looks real sharp.
I haven't seen anything yet and I wouldn't expect anything until next year some time. That being said, I would guess it would be about the same as the F250 or better.
LOL, that's funny. When he does go out and get one of those diecast models that Costco sells and tell him you bought him a brand new truck.
Now that's nice! Sorry glfortner, after your husband sees this, I'm afraid there will be a lot of talk of a new truck. I know there will be in my house.
AAAHHHHH! Sorry about the toy truck thing.....LOL. It would be a funny gag gift though. I can't believe I didn't make that connection! Any how......Sure is a nice truck!
I'll take a super duty with a plow on the front it right now. I wouldn't mind plowing my driveway in a nice warm truck.
I was just at this site and they have photos of the new 2009 Ford F150. Looks pretty good. check it out.
I thought I read somewhere that they'll bring out the diesel in 2010 model year.
