On my vacation last week I was lucky enough to have my truck totaled, boat trailer totaled, and my boat damaged. I'm now in the processes of getting quotes for everything to the insurance company and finding replacements. I had a 2005 Suburban 2500 with the 6.0L. I was pretty happy with it and if I were to change anything it would be to get one with the 8.1L. I have considered an Excursion with the 7.3 or 6.0, but have not found any in my price range yet. I would also consider a crew cab truck. I have seen a couple high milages H2s also, but not sure how well they tow. This will NOT be a daily driver. I will put maybe 5,000 miles on it a year with more trips being less than 30 miles to the lake. It will also get a little use on the farm. This is why my budget is so low. I cannot see a reason to pay any more for something that will get driven so little and will spend most of it's life hooked to the boat in the garage.

Any other vehicles I should be looking for? I think a 1/2 ton truck would do the job for the boat, but I also have a 30' camper that weighs around 8000 pounds that I would like to be able to pull with this truck too.
