Thanks to all who are posting on this thread. I traded a 2001 F-250 SB CC XLT 5.4L in 2 years ago on a Dodge 1500 5.7 CC, and have regretted it ever since. The F-250 was just for groceries and doc's office and Momma's daily driver. It got 12 or so around town and 15 on the road, always driven geezerly by me or Momma... never over 65MPH. My other truck is 2001 F-350 CC Lariat DRW LWB 7.3L (198K miles) used to haul an RV. I recently downsized from 12000# 5'ver to 7500# travel trailer and am considering a 2015 F-250 CC SWB XLT 6.2L truck. I'm pleased to see that the 6.2L has handled a 10K 5'ver in some hills. Thanks to Iggy from AZ for the info. I'm still on the fence about letting go of my old 7.3, still smarting from my move to Mopar and ensuing disappointment.

But thanks to all for the info.
