Sure seems to be a lot of dually haters here. I bought mine 10/13 and have put just over 100K on it so far. If in a parking lot either park out a ways or back in. Mine is a CC LB and I can parallel park it on city streets. But I'm from the old school where you had to be able to parallel park during you drivers license test in order to pass.


That's just like today's truck drivers and asking thiem to drive a manual trans......forget it. In fact, when they take their road tests, it's stamped on their license as to what they can drive! If test is taken on a truck w/ a auto trans, then it's stamped "Auto Only"....so if you have a stick in the yard and "their" auto tans truck breaks down, they cannot drive the stick truck.

For my 16,000 lb rv I wouldn't want a dually. I tow a heavy tandem dually gooseneck trailer some with my SRW and I would be better off with duals on those occasions..... My next truck will likely be another SRW.

Just because I prefer a srw does not make me a drw hater. I put 230K miles on my dually and about the same on my srw's. Personal preference in no way makes someone a hater.
Some of you guys claim hater if someones opinion differs from yours. That says a lot about folks.

While I am a daily dually driver and believe in dually's, 12K GVW does not warrant a dually. It boils down to weight more than anything, 12K simply does not require a dually.

Nothing wrong with differing opinions but some sure come out strong against duallies hence the hater tag. As for myself I only bought my first dually in 09 and I've had trucks since 65

Don't need...found a great deal when I was looking and the truck happen to be a dually....so I went for it and really like it. Parking takes a little more patience...heck my next truck may be a SRW again...who knows?

Never owned a dually, but have driven a few, dozen.
For the OP, they already know a dually will pull rock solid. Agree, a srw truck will be more than enough for a trailer that size.
I'd rip the hitch off a 12k trailer all day with my little old 3/4 ton Dodge. But if I was towing full time, I'd get the training wheels. Daily driver, srw.
