But, you can get good deals on an F150 if you look a little. I towed up around 6-7K with my Tundra a few times, and while it would do it the truck sure didn't like it. I had a work truck (2010 Silverado HD) with the 6.0L. It's a good drivetrain, but it averaged 14.5 mpg unloaded and under 9 just towing a small motorcycle trailer. The Titan XD was a rockstar when towing, 5.0L Cummins and got better mileage towing than the work truck did empty. You might find a used one in the mid $30K range, you won't find a new one under $50K. The gas engine is ok, but mpg is poor. My wife has an Armada now, oddly enough it's the same chassis as the Titan and has a 5.6L gas engine. But gets 19 mpg at home and when we recently went to northern PA I got about 15.6 mpg towing the pop up at 70. A hybrid trailer is going to get worse mileage as it has more wind resistance. A gas F250 is great for towing, but you'll get less than 10mpg. Any of those should hold up for 10 years and 150K with some regular maintenance. I drive a lot, so I watch my mpg a lot. If you think of that 150K miles and the money difference between something that gets 20 mpg and another vehicle that gets 15 it can really add up. Would your budget allow you to get something that you mainly only use to tow the camper? Then use a more economical vehicle for daily use.
