what to do

i just ordered a new 5th wheel toy hauler now i will have a camper that is too heavy for my trucks rating. it will be somewhere around 14,000lbs empty and will have maximum trailer rating somewhere around 18,000lbs now if i want to remain legal i have to buy a 2005 and newer F350 dually. so here is my question should i buy a 6.0 or a 6.4? from what i have read the 6.4 has had some issues also. my perception is that the 6.4 is more reliable, but is also more expensive to fix if/when something happens. i do plan on tuning/deleting the truck i buy if it isn't done already. any opinions are welcome, but i would really like someone who has owned both to chime in.
Thanks

Not sure what the laws are in MN, but if youre hauling safely (proper lights, connections, chains, tires, etc) you should not have a problem.

You ever have an accident and you're over weight, you're screwed!

Thanks for the response guys! And yeah.... I would rather be safe than sorry. I am going to end up pulling it some with the truck I have now because I can't afford to buy both that close together :-)~ but I will be updating my truck fairly soon.
