Can a SRW handle the +3k lbs pin weight? I know a dually is the ultimate setup but not if it's going to be your daily driver too. Are dually's double the weight capacity vs SRW?

Is this really a thing? Do DOT officers pull over recreational vehicles for inspections like they do with big rigs?

Not sure. My concern is in having an accident. The attorneys will go over EVERYTHING, and discrepancies in all the capacities and weight ratings could be big problem in a lawsuit.

I know a sharp lawyer would have that checked and if you were overloaded could make that an issue.

Dually vs non-dually is not as critical has diesel vs gas. We pull our xlr thunderbolt with a diesel dually and we have no issues. We just feel safer with the extra wheels, more power and better gas mileage.

I'd not even consider 3100 pin weight on my 2016 F350 swd 6.7. Dually would be required for me and I'll not buy another dually...

I'm using a 2011 F-350 with the 6.7 and it does a wonderful job. We've been all through the BlueRidge and Smokey Mountains and it never misses a beat. Started out with a F-350 SW but it always felt like it was trying to push you in curves and wanted to move you around when 18 wheelers would pass. The dually has fixed all of that.
