Honestly, there are other threads that address that, I have not even considered it!! This truck rocks this trailer, I keep it under 75 primarily due to not being a dually!! SRW has never been an issue as I keep my tires in good shape and always monitor the psi when pulling.

I think he means like monitor it before/after, while fueling, ect... Not like stick your head out the window and look at the tires while driving

No, there is no way to monitor your tire pressure on your trailers using the trucks TPMS, as a matter of fact, you can't even see your exact pressure on your trucks tires. It will just let you know when it is below a certian threshold.

I tow a 32 footer about 13.5k with my SRW 350 and never had a problem with stability. As a matter of fact my last trip from Florida to upstate NY in early July I had a blowout on my 5'er and due to the stability contron on the truck the camper never even wiggled at 70 MPH. Awsome towing machine!

Also airbags are a must! my truck squats about 4" when hooked up, that puts your headlights right in the eyes of incoming traffic.

I pulled my current 5th wheel (40 ft, 14,200 lbs, 2100 pin wt) with my '08 SRW before I got the dually, and it pulled just fine. The dually is definitely better, but you'll be good. The bags will be a great addition to level and stabilize too.

The hitch you choose makes a big difference as well. Don't skimp there.
