Any fuel savings would be negligible really. The 2500 is a heavier vehicle but in my limited experience with my vehicle and my friends RAMs (2500 3G, 1500 4G, 1500 3G) we all get around 13mpg and 11mpg when towing. We live in the mountains of WV. I know the payment is lower but how many more payments does it add? We would need more info like how long is the warranty on the current truck and how much is left etc etc. The 2500 is harder on ball joints and universals than the 1500 is so it may not be the monthly costs are lower but maintenance may be substantial if you factor in that you would qualify to purchase the max car extended lifetime warranty on a new 1500. What cab do you have and what cab are you looking at?
