4 horse with LQ safe with 08 F250?

Looking to pick up a 4 horse trailer with living quarters in the near future. I have a 2006 f350 drw and my g/f has a 2008 f250, she wants to haul this trailer with her truck but I feel it will be safer with my drw.

I know the 250 with pull it no problem but i think there will be considerably more sway with semis passing and such. Her truck is 4x4 bone stock.

Weight on the trailer tag says 9900lbs which i assume is unloaded and its about 35ft. (gooseneck)

What do you guys think?

I would think that her truck would be fine assuming that she is an experienced tower. However the difference in towing a large trailer with a DRW vs SRW is night and day and I will pick the DRW any day.
