Since DRW's are so awesome triple rear wheels would be even better? I think all dually owners should tub thier trucks and add a 3rd wheel! Safe towing everyone.

Quick lane change with the SRW I could feel the boat tugging on the truck,,,,,DRW just followed right behind me.

Brakes should not be an issue,,,,, if you dont keep your trailer brakes right,,,, you have bigger problems then the truck you choose

Agreed..but these threads make for good reading...lol

If someone thinks they need a dually truck to tow better or safer then they must have a dually boat trailer ....right? Lol.

If singles can handle the whole boat then there's no reason why srw will not handle the small amount of tongue weight.
super single semis
Or upgrade your trucks srw tires and have the best of both.

OP. Buy a SRW to tow your 311. By the time you buy a bigger boat it will be time for another truck anyways!

Then we can start this all over. Just make sure it's in the winter when we are bored!
