Wow that truck does look pretty nice.
I forgot that you had mentioned that your friend called you about that truck, and if he is a friend and works at a dealer, then I'm sure he can get his crew to give it a good honest once over.
I suppose if you are going to be keeping the truck for a long time to pull that heavy trailer, and you are at even or ahead, then I suppose its a good deal.
How often do you plan on pulling that 28 footer?
The draw back to going to that old of a vehicle is that you don't get all the latest and greatest.......in fact I don't even know what you get aside from a tape deck? LOL......
I would think that if you don't pull that trailer all that often, that perhaps a rental for the few times you need it would make more sense?
I just did a quick search for some 2500's in Florida, and I came up with this one?
I don't know if it's close to you, or something that you would be interested in, but I think I would shop around first.
