Murph0408 is on a distinguished road

i have the crew cab w/ the hemi. i do about 70%/30% city/highway driving and get 15mpg. i've seen it get 18-20 on the highway on long trips. i don't tow but i can tell you these are massive trucks and can haul. if you aren't carrying loads all the time and have price in mind i think the 1500 ram is your pick. take a look at the 11's i'm sure you can get some serious deals on them since the 12's are out

only issue is i have zero experience with towing so i don't know how well the 1500 will tow your camper obviously it depends on the size of it. compared to the other trucks you mentioned i test drove the big 3 (ford dodge chev) and this was not a close decision. the dodge is the biggest/baddest of the three and had the most kick to it IMHO

also you'll be very impressed with the rear seat space in the crew cab, that is what really sold me on it instead of getting the quad which also has 4 doors but is smaller inside
