I just picked up a 2017 RAM 1500 Quad cab, short bed hemi with 22k miles for $23,000. Getting ~16mpg it replaced my 08 1500 Hemi, getting 13mpg.
I was looking for a similar 2500 6.4L, but just couldn't get to my price point, they were $10k+ higher.
Like you it's an unloaded daily driver most of the time, I might tow 9000 lbs twice a year and 5000 lbs 10 times a year. I did it with my 08, so I'm figuring the 17 should do it too. 9 years in truck technology is nice, this thing rides a lot better, seat is more comfortable, accelerates faster, bluetooth phone/radio and back up camera kick ass...just hoping it holds up as long.
