turbo/non-turbo advice

I own a 77 300d (non-turbo) which I am quite happy with apart from the fact that it's carrying capacity is somewhat limited. I do a lot of canoeing and carry a lot of camping gear along with a couple of boats so I am looking for a 300TD. I'm looking at a 1980 TD at the moment that is in good condition with relatively low miles, but it does not have a turbo. Given the fact that I will be carrying a lot of gear in the vehicle, should I pass on this one and wait for a turbo version?? How much difference does that turbo make? Can someone who has experience with both offer some advice? By the way, I live in Colorado so altitude is a factor.
