Since you haven't bought the SRW yet get a dually. You will be a lot happier towing a 41ft camper

Absolutely get a dually. I have a 40' 5er and pull it with a dually without any problems whatsoever. Just be conscious of your length and height, allow more space when reversing it in to a site and take things steady while you're driving. If it takes you and extra hour a day to get to your destination, so be it. You'll still be able to rest and relax but have a ton of space in which to do it.

Enjoy and good luck with your selections.

We use F350 for towing 42' 21,000lb 415amp XLR.

It's not used for anything else.

Diesels don't enjoy errand running, shopping, etc. It sits in garage five months/year (2-1/2 month intervals) where it enjoys owner supplied maintenance.

Sixteen year old F150 for LTL work when we're home.

Wife has her own Ford suburban assault vehicle.

As one who recently switched from SRW to a dually, don't go into this "under-trucked". I pull a 40'Ft as well. The dually is so much more stable and now within safe weight limits of the truck. Safety, stability and handling are greatly improved. Otherwise a rig that size should not be a problem with caution and common sense.

I want to clarify my original post and say that I echo others recommending the dually since you have not yet bought a truck. When I replace mine, it will be a dually. However, what I have works fine and I am under the axle specs so I'm not rushing out to replace it.

You will be fine. With a 5th wheel, a 40 footer is only 32 behind the truck so in reality, easier to tow then a 32-35ft TT and with a long bed, you can always get that 90 degree Turing radius.

I would say, as long as you have a 1 ton long bed, you should be fine and not limited to any style fiver. I personal prefer the dually towing experience but my last 2 trucks were SRW. Enjoy!

I have a 2012 Silverado SRW diesel and I pull a 35ft Cedar Creek and it does a great job but should I buy the 40ft Cedar Creek then I'll trade for the dually.
