Limited driving issues

OK, so right now I have a 2009 Toyota Tundra that I only drive on weekends maybe. I have it to tow a 6500 lb bumper pull travel trailer. Last time we went camping I was talking to a couple guys that had newer Super Duties about how much better towing with a diesel is. I have been looking at the 7.3 Crew Cab 4x4 Powerstrokes but curious if the amount of sitting the truck will be doing will negatively affect it any. If I can find the right one, it will probably be the last truck I ever have to buy. Also if I do get a 7.3 we will probably upgrade to a fifth wheel soon after. Any opinions?

I've put under 5k a year on my truck for the past 2.5 years... You'll be fine. Just be sure to get it running and drive it every now and then.

Just went back over some old posts of mine.... I've put 2500 miles on my truck in the past year. Previous two years I've put less than 10k miles on the truck.
