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?

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.
