Default 5.3L vs 6.0L vs 8.1L for towing and working

Im looking to pick up a truck ($5k-$8k range) to tow the boat, and use for hunting and what not. Not looking for a DD. Im trying to get feedback on towing a 6k lb boat setup. I would like to get a diesel but dont want to spend the money on one. How do the 5.3Ls do for towing? I hear unloaded the 5.3ls do pretty good on fuel, but how would it do for hauling? My in laws have a 04 Denaili yukon and we pulled the boat last year and it pulled awesome, I was pretty impressed with it. Fuel mileage wasnt bad with it either. Should I expect the same performance out of a 2500HD with a 6.0L?
