Bringing it to $ 73,402. Please advise me if I should be posting in another thread. Any help is appreciated

Maybe. Of course it depends on your truck's capacity and what's loaded into the 5er. Add a washer/dryer, a generator, 5th wheel hitch, and your pin weight may be too much. The newer 2500's may be adequate-

Don't be afraid to haggle with the dealer! Worst thing that can happen is they say "No". Be sure it's a local dealer and they have a good service department as you'll likely be visiting them over the next 2 years for warranty issues.
