What is a good truck to tow a trailer with?

My wife and I are going mobile for the next year while she travels for med school. We are looking at purchasing a truck to haul a 28' camper trailer (not 5th wheel) and want to spend at most around $6000. We will be traveling from Portland to Alaska to New Mexico to Idaho and beyond, easily 15k miles of towing in less than a year. In addition, mileage will increase because this will be our day to day vehicle for the two months we are in each location. Any suggestions or comments would be super helpful!

You'll need a 1 ton dually to handle the weight of 28' trailer. Chevy. GMC, Dodge or Ford make really good 1 tons for towing. The Chevy/GMC transmission has the best write up of the group and their later model trucks come with a trans temp gauge as standard equipment.

A diesel engine will give you better gas mileage on long stretches. But they also work the hardest on up grades and tend to lose speed if the grade is too steep or too long. Also, diesels are harder to start in cold weather. Since you'll be traveling to Alaska where there is very high elevations and extreme cold and Idaho can also get very cold, I'd recommend a gas engine. You'll be grateful you have one when you're climbing up all those steep grades.
