2005 6.0 or 2010 6.7

Need advice on which to go with. Having to give up my 2001 F250 7.3 @ 244,000 miles (loved this truck). I have a friend who will sell me their 2005 6.0, 40,000 mi., or I can get a new 2010 6.7. I pull a 3 horse gooseneck with loaded living quarters (10ft. short wall). Wondering if there's a big difference in power between the 6.0 and the 6.7. If not, I'd just as soon buy the used 2005 because I know it's been taken very good care of, just not driven much. Also, my 2001 has a long wheel base. The '05 and '10 are shorts -- will that make a difference? Thanks for your advice!

I would get the 6.4l. More power, less problems. Only downside is the mileage

Well it's hard for me to say this, but I might give the 6.4 a try. Compound turbos, common rail, real hard decision. As for having a short bed pulling a gooseneck you'll just have to be careful making real tight turns.

Yes it can be done you just have to be careful. I would recommend a slider hitch. I wish I had one

No gooseneck slider hitches, only for 5th wheels. They do have offset adapters for goosenecks. I'd just watch what I was doing and call it a day...

Ah..... its been a long day. lol A gooseneck trailer wont be as bad since they aren't as wide as a 5th wheel. Just watch it carefully while turning sharp and backing up.

LOL, I was about to say man when did this come out. Yea, like you said just be careful and you should be ok...

I have a slider for my truck and I've only had to use it a couple times. I just try not to put myself in situations where I have too. It is nice though to know it's there when I need it.
