The Five Star DEF Story: We Buy a Diesel Truck, and Begin a Road Trip

We purchased a brand new 2013 Ford F350 Super Duty truck in June, 2013. We needed a 14,000 GVWR truck that could haul our pickup camper and tow our utility trailer at the same time, and would be economical to drive long distances with our slide-in camper; so, we picked a truck with the 6.7L Power Stroke engine. We had never owned a diesel powered vehicle, but after many test drives and some research, we were amazed by the quiet, clean, and powerful diesel engines that power the new Ford, Chevrolet, GM, and Dodge RAM full size pickups (we test drove each before deciding on the Ford). We travel with our pets and wanted a bigger camper which meant we had to have a big diesel truck.
