I like to break my cost into an hourly figure so I can include the expenses in my estimate.
Yeah start off with even a newer used truck, Our 06 F250 SD is running us 525.00/mo and a diesel wasnt much more than our truck. Plus if you do get a diesel, the fuel wont cost you half that figure per month, our 5.4L gasser only uses a tank (38gallon) every 3-4 weeks pulling our trailer loaded down. Our F250 pulls our 8.5x16 enclosed trailer loaded down like theres hardly anything behind it, diesels IMO are over-rated especially for around town, stop and go traffic.
