How many folks pull a "Gooseneck Trailer" with SRW?

I was wondering how many folks here pull a "gooseneck" style trailer with a SRW F250?
I have a 32 ft bumper pull tag trailer and am contimplating moving up to a bigger trailer and was wondering if the SRW is going to be a problem with a "gooseneck" style.
Any input or suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks for your time to reply.

As long as you stay within your GVW, it won't be a problem whatsoever. In fact, I'll bet you'll like pulling it better than your bumper pull. The gooseneck won't sway as and is much easier to maneuver.

I do as you can see in my sig. I haul all over the place with my f250 and my 25ft gooseneck, if you get one your truck will thank you over pulling around a bumper pull. The pic in my sig is from when I hauled 2 tractors from st.louis to southern ohio.

you will notice a huge improvement with a gooseneck, i would rather pull 10,000lbs on a goosenck than 5,000lbs on a bumper pull. I have used my uncles dually truck a few times and they may be slightly more stable, especially in corners or with a sidewind. but unless you pull a lot or huge loads i dont see that they are necisary in my opinion.

Yup, I pull a variety of goosenecks with my SRW,
here are a few of the loads, some of them are quite heavy and I havent had any problems with the SRW at all.
25' with our john deere 95hp tractor

35' with my buddys 2500 cummins

35' with neighbors 75hp john deere with bucket 4x4

same tractor on the 25' trailer
i really like the way the 35' pulls better, but it is def. much heavier

I pull a 4 horse slant gooseneck in the Colorado mountains with no problems. A gooseneck is much easier to manuever than a bumper pull.

Mine with horses is around 13,000 lbs. Not terrible heavy. But I won't go back to a bumper pull

Interesting........ I have a Short Bed SRW F250..

I've been thinking about a travel trailer and actually just saw a SRW Short Bed 350 pulling a goose neck T.T. this morning and was thinking if my 250 would be able to do that.. Now I have proof


Thanks for the thread guys
