the single would handle what you need it to but since you tow often you should get a fat bottom girl . she will haul better biggest difference would be sway .
thats my opinion

190cc injectors,air dog150, stage II fuel supply, custom turbo , SCT X3 tuned by eric at innovative , afe cold air intake ,zoodad, arp studs, snow meth.injection, 5in straight pipes to 8in stacks, innovative uppipe, triple pod with glow shift, remote oil cooler and filters, sinister egr delete , all by myself with cab on , never do it again!!!! and alot of good info from org

I've towed with both, if you don't have the space constraints and have the room to park the dually go with it. The duals in the rear help a lot with trailer sway, and load distribution. Of course, the truck will be able to tow more. Its the parking lots that can become an issue, and be mindful there is a loss of traction with the dually in the snow (the rears tend to float a bit with their bigger footprint).

DRW all the way!! The SRW would get the job done but the DRW with provide more stability, as already said above once you tow a load like you have with a dually you will never want a SRW again, trust me I've had both. Just my .02.

I do a lot of towing. I haven't towed with a dually before so I can't speak about that. I will say that I haven't ever felt uncomfortable when I'm towing with this SRW 6.0 or my previous two SRW 7.3s. I'd say try out a dually and try out an SRW hauling the same load and see if you notice a big difference. If not, go with the SRW.
