Travel trailer 5th Wheeler Diesel Pickup?

I am looking for a Diesel pickup to pull my 26 foot 5th wheeler, I want either a Ford, Chevy/GMC or a Dodge, which would get the best fuel mileage and what do you think my fuel mileage would be?
Well I don’t know how much it weighs, but it is a standard size 5th wheeler, with fiberglass sides, and everything that would come with it. So it looks to be pretty heavy, I was told I need at least a 3/4 ton Pickup. It may in the area of 5000-7000 pounds.

    Ford has a good diesel and better transmission than Dodge.Stay away from Duramax disposible engines.

    I would go with either a GMC or a Chevy and mileage would be around 16mpg.

    The question is, how much does the trailer weigh? That determines how big of a truck you need.
    And you’re going to need to get a really big truck if you want a diesel. Which means you’ll probably get around 10mpg or less.
