Look in the truck/trailers forum. There has been some spirited debate on this lately.

Have a F350 SWR pulls the 39 Cigarette great. Boat weighs 12,000 dry.

Agree though dually's are awesome. The wife would do some real damage with the extra set of wheels.

@huskyrider Any 1/2 ton pickup can tow 8000-9000lbs now.


I love my dually and she loves me back. I usually just park a little farther out where I can kick it on an angle into two spots (just donít take it shopping for Christmas). If your testosterone levels ever fall off, instead of heading to the doctor, just take your dually out for a spin. premierPOWER


I loved the mall parking lots where I could park way away from everybody and take FOUR spots. I do that with my 300 now too. I don't mind walking because I know I won't get door banged.

I could put my dually almost anywhere I wanted to. Went through my bank drive through all the time with it. Right turns were an issue but I just had to be careful to swing out wide enough. Other than the manual trans which sucked in town I loved my dually.

F350 Dually pulling a 336 Formula = a safe and comfortable feeling.

Sounds like I started the "winterizing" thread in August type of discussion here. I figured there be some debate, and I've always loved duallys even before I was a boater, just thought they were cool looking. I would only buy one if there was a a significant advantage of a srw when towing my boat. I know a 2500 diesel would work great just want to know what a dually would get me.

Oh and I'll ask the gf if she is ok driving it.
