Advice on buying a powerstroke

I am looking into buying a diesel to pull my camper and need any advice on what to buy. I am currently pulling with a half ton but it's not much fun and time to get a bigger truck. (keeping this truck though)
I don't need anything fancy because we may camp a dozen times a year and within 100 miles of home. I was looking at something with maybe 200k miles but need advice on 7.3 or 6.0 . I don't mind the upgrades that come with the 6.0 if it would make a better truck but don't want to spend a fortune on the truck or upgrades because It wouldn't be a daily driver. Any advice would be appreciated.

Look at the stickies on each applicable engine forum. They are a lot of help.

Although he isn't really well liked here, but powerstrokehelp on YouTube does have alot of good things too look for, but some of his repair guides and some of his practices or questionable.
