I'm on my second dually and won't tow with anything less. If you order the towing mirrors, seeing around the rear flares is not a problem. If you have the regular mirrors, they suck and you need to buy the slide on extensions so you can see.

Default Duallie Purposes!!

Wow, the only thing better than the 95 F350, Powerstroke that EZTERMS and I use to tow,,,,, would be a brand new one PAID FOR!!

But seriously, we have 120 K on ours, due to travel, moving etc. and it still purrs like a kitten. When we towed the 25 it was like a speck on the back bumper(well almost) and now with the 35 it still is smooth.

Yes you should get out and check the tires, and sometimes you have to park away from the madding crowd, but that's okay, more excersize!!

I also have to say we have fired up that AC/Diesel more than once for an airconditioned nap/snooze, when things got warm!

When you look out on the road, all you see is the F350CCD pulling, anything substancial,,, hourse trailers, boats, other pickups!! AND AT THE RACES, well I rest my case!

I just bought my first dualy this last summer. Bottom line is I never want another srw truck again. It drives like a sports car compaired to srw. Stability is great, cross winds effect it alot less its like the trailer isnt there. As for backing up and seeing the trailer its all in the mirrors and most factory ones dont do the job. My ladies call it the truck with hips

Formula1. I'm towing with a 98' K3500 CrewCab GMC T/Diesel. Without a doubt, the dual rear gives great stability. As for the width, actually its overall (I think) just about the same as the normal mirrors are out there. Not a problem at all other than for finding parking......I like to call it landing the thing. 67K on it now, never a issue, nor a regret buying it.

Now. My boat is just under 10' wide, so I really concentrate on the boat edges more than the wheels. (although I can see them fine with the mirrors angled in and down....and these are not extended either).

Thanks for your replies! But I also forgot to ask, how many of you have duallies that are 4 WHEEL DRIVE? I know 4WD comes in handy (on occasion), but I've never used 4WD towing my boat (in or out of the ramp)!! I used to use it all the time when I had to back UP my driveway and all six surge brakes kicked on!!

I just bought a 2002 F350 4x4 Crew Cab dually, I don't know why I waited so long, it is the ultimate truck, there will not be any raeson to get a new one, you will never need to move up because you got a bigger boat.
