Any MS owners with a F650 Crew Cab Supercrewzer RV hauler?

We have been looking at a 2001 Ford F650 Crew Cab Super Crewzer [3126B diesel Cat, 300 hp, Allison MD 3066 6-speed automatic, 8,000 lb front axle, 15,000 lb Meritor rear axle, Hendrickson air ride rear suspension, GVWR 23,000 lbs w/o payload, 34,500 lbs w-payload, GCWR 43,000 lbs w-trailer]. We just retired & want to travel around U.S., but have read all the horror stories of not having a big enough tow vehicle. Also talked to state troopers who say they will be cracking down on insufficient GCVWR tow vehicles because there are so many accidents these days on interstates and state routes. The Super Crewzer would meet & exceed the GCWR of our 2005 MS 31RS3 fully loaded that we presently tow with our manual 5-speed 1 ton 1996 F350 crew cab. The Super Crewzer has 60,000 miles on it and it has been driven fairly hard ... lots of fiberglass cracks and some dings on it. Also has some brace work on underside of bed. We think we might regret buying it because we will have to put $$ into body work. Any MS owners have personal experience w-Super Crewzer or know others with one?
