How much more can a 3500 dually tow vs. SRW 3500?

Can someone tell me how much more of a towing capacity a dually 3500 can tow/haul vs a single rear wheel 3500 in a gooseneck setup?

Thanks

2011 Fifth wheel/Gooseneck specs:
CCLB SRW 4X4 - 17,000 GVWR 11,600
CCLB DWR 4X4 - 21,100 GVWR 13,000

My 3500HD SRW weight is about 8100 lbs with 3/4 tank of fuel, fifth wheel hitch, air bags, running boards and me (185 lbs).

Does it matter what year it is? I have a 2006 3500 SRW hauling a 7000 lb boat and trailer...

The 2011 is built a little stouter. I would not worry about the 7k boat though. Your good up to 20k if you want to push it. The main thing is tougne weight. Anything over about 10k I would want a gooseneck for sure.

I owned 3 SWR trucks, all one-tons, and finally bought a dually. The stability on the big trailers is what sold me. I never believed a dually was necessary until I drove one for a few hundred miles with a big trailer. Owned a dually ever since.
