We pull the 38fl with an F350 dully (8' bed) and it feels like it's on rails. Never had any issues, even going up and over the Rockies.
I would recommend getting a slip tank to give you some extra range.

First, must be a diesel. I've pulled with both the SWR and DWR. The DWR is by far the better option.

DRW is the way to go for safety issues in itself, if you are unlucky enough to get a rear wheel blowout on your SRW truck while towing the fiver...ask me how I know!

A dually for peace or mind.

All depends on which brand and year of vehicle. My 14, Ram 2500 is rated to pull 200lb more than the 3500, and 2000lb more than the SRW. F350. Do your home work and get what fits your criteria. 2014 Ram with coils and new frame is rated at over 17200lb. Towing capacity

but payload capacity will always be higher on a dually and stability much better

We have a 14, 36 ckts. I bought a 14 F350 dually, 6.7. I look at them all and ready wanted a SWD. After much research and test drives. I went with the F350. My last 7 vehicles have been GM....but the new F350 simply have the most in what I look for in a TV. The Denali was a close second. After you drive a dually for a while...you will almost forget is a dually. Only downside is no carwash. A dually is without question the safest TV to pull a 5er. Good luck with your decision.

After all our research, the one thing we didn't realize was the carwash. We both, just now, through our arms in the air with "wow" on our minds.

I wouldn't think of pulling the 36CKTS with anything but a 1ton dually.
