I agree...buy as much truck as you can. When I bought my Silverado, I had not anticipated on wanting to go to a larger TT with a slide. So now I am kinda between a rock and a hard place! I can move into something similar but with a slide or just be happy with what I got. I wanted to go with a FR but too close to the limit. Good luck!

That's good right there, but the gas mileage sucks.

I don't have but can concur a Dually in snow is not very good, unless it is weighed down. We had a DRW on loan and never was able to climb a hill with snow or loose gravel. The SRW F250 walked up the hill no problem.

I have a dually and a srw bronco they both do fine in snow, as long as there weighted down, bronco is a 4x but the one ton does fine unless it's due for new rubber.

We have a DWR on our 2nd of both 5er and truck. For me it's the only truck I will pull with there are limitations pros and cons with all combos. Only thing no one really ever talks about, don't really know why is legal. To me that's the most important of all. The last thing you want is to give someone everything you've worked your life to get.

Legal as far as over loading the TV? Then getting sued?

Yes overloading TV I can't say for other states but in IL, if you carry more than your truck is licensed to you are looking at a ticket. And According to the ISP if your truck is over 8001 lbs you don't get B-truck plates you must have D plates also it now has to be safety tested 2 time a year. I would also say your insurance won't cover a wreck if that were brought up in the issues. I couldn't tell someone else how they should do things I only can say what I would do.
