Even with my 1/2 ton, I've loaded it too heavy in the rear and it put too little weight on the hitch, real bad ride! I was just thinking that having that weight on a dually may be better??? Or possibly setting them with just a small amount of distribution???
Weight distribution is critical, improperly distributed weight on a trailer can have the the tail wagging the dog. Fords sway contol is pretty awesome, videos available to watch as they INTENTIONALLY load a trailer with too much weight at the rear of the trailer.
My thoughts are, as stable as the dually is it actually has less lbs per sq inch weight at the duals as a SRW as the weight is distributed over twice the tire surface area. Prepare for the worst possible conditions, such as wet slick roads and you will be fine...
