Default Dream Towing set up ?

What would your Dream Tow Set up be ??
personally 05 Dodge 2500 HD Cummins loaded 26' Bumper pull dovetail open Deck, and a Lance MAX 981 Camper.
Lance makes some NICE camper with lots of room for a truck camper, and this would save a lot on hotel rooms.. Sorry im a pussy and dont like roughing it

That setup would be sweet! I'm kind of torn between the Dodge's w/a Cummins and the Ford Superduty's with the Power Stoke.
I can't see buying a Chevy w/IFS. there all badass trucks, but I'd have to stick with a solid axle.

IFS is to give a better ride on the road. Normally that is where tow rigs stay.

True, but if I was to buy a newer diesel, I'd also want a plow on it, and plows and IFS don't mix. (just my opinion)
