I see what you're saying that would make sense to go new. You will be able to tow just about whatever you want.

The only thing that turns me away from buying a new truck is it depreciates so much once you drive it off the lot but I mean that's just one little thing

But look at it this way, no matter what you buy it will depreciate. The only that won't is a house. But the way the economy is today you'll never know. You only live once.
