Default Which Engine V6 or V8

I'm looking to get a 2500 High Roof. Trying to figure out which engine I need.

I sometimes tow a 16 ft. 6000 lb enclosed trailer full of equipment. All my mileage is local short trips never over 20 miles one way. 75% of miles are without towing the trailer.

I currently drive a Chevy Express 3500 Van with a 5.7 liter V8. It tows the trailer with no problems. However it only gets around 12 mpg around town when not towing. I was hoping to be able to use the 4.0 liter V6 in the Nissan 2500 because it says it can tow up to 7000 lbs. It thought maybe I could get a couple more mpg's out of the V6 when I'm not towing which accounts for most of my driving .

I'm just wondering if anyone has towed that much weight with the V6 & how well does it tow?
