I have had both. I am back to a single diesel. Noticed no difference in the stability of towing my fifth wheel. But when we are traveling if we want to go out for dinner and/or go to attractions parking is a lot easier.

IMO
I would prefer to tow with a dually but when it comes to DD, I much prefer the single wheel truck!

I am still kicking my self for buying the 2500. I could have gotten a lot more piece of mind with the 3500.

If I was on the fence between a 3500 SRW and DRW, I would not make the same mistake again. DRW all the way.

I tow a 35CKTS with a 3/4 ton, SRW, with air bags on the rear. I have no squat and the TV and CC are stable.

I have a 2012 Ram 3500 SRW. I went into the dealership a year ago to buy a 2500 only to find that the 3500 was a couple hundred more. It was worth it for the extra payload.

I love my truck but looking back, if the DRW wasn't much more I would of convinced the Mrs we needed it. Of course we don't but I love the look of them.

I'm probably better off with a SRW though as I daily drive the truck and parking spaces at work are tight.

So i would vote SRW if you daily drive and see a lot of parking lots like myself.

We have the RAM 3500 duallys, to pull a big rig they are the way to go, a much smoother ride and more stable.

I have a Silverado 2500 diesel, extended cab, capacity 17,500. My rig loaded comes in very close to that. I added air bags, but probably donít need them. No stopping, handling or stability issues, in the mountains or flat lands. We can park anywhere.

Not sure where you live but an empty dually is a nightmare during Minnesota winters. Make sure you really need it.
