Plenty of power and braking with my 3500 DRW pulling our 36CKTS.

The only real difference you would feel from SRW to DRW would be stability with the dually. You can convert your truck to a dually and add fender flares or change the whole box. Or you can change out the whole rear end.
Other things would change as well but that is the quick simple info.
As long as your not maxing speed on the road there is no reason you can make the SRW work for you.

I plan to move the entertainment center from the corner to the rear of camper. I have to hire someone to build me a cabinet for the TV to fit in plus put in the fireplace. Then I have to move all the cables from where the TV is now to the rear. The real expense is putting two more windows in where the TV is now. Plus DW wants a cabinet so she can have more space for pots and pans, also somewhere else to put the trash instead of under the sink.

I have a 2013 36 CKTS and pull with a F350, SRW 20", 6.7L diesel and air bags. When I first picked up the CC I had a F250, SRW 20", 6.0L diesel. It was adequate but seemed underpowered in the mountains. I have traveled about 15 K miles since I got the CC and have experienced no problems with pulling or stability. With the air ride and air hitch I don't even feel it behind us on the road.

Tom Johnson has a good deal on the 36RE but I am going to have to pass, $63,631. The camper was $79,000 and Forest River will not make anymore 36RE but I will have to stick with what I have, the 36RE has got everything that I want in a camper but I am going to keep what I have and fix it up some. I think the reason Tom cut the price so much is FR has quit making the 36RE.
