Last winter bought 95 T300 KW for $4800 and shortened it in my shop and mounted a used 18 ft flat dump and it gets 6-8 depending on what it does. It is powered by 8.3 Cummins whit a 6 spd Fuller. Still have the 14ft gooseneck dump we used to think was better than good. medium duty trucks can be had reasonably and are cheaper to run than pickups and trailers.
What I don't get is my dad drive a semi with around a 14L 550hp engine and despite the truck weighing 80k loaded he can get 7-8 mpg on the freeway.
