Which Truck?

I am getting an F-250 or 350, but will the SRW and DRW make a big difference in pulling a 48ft gooseneck? I am wanting SRW so I can do other things with the truck but I am not sure if I need DRW. I will be hauling my 98 GT and 97 Cobra along with tools and such. I run HPDE with Nasa and will be hauling long distances. Sorry if y'all get these posts a lot, my dad used an 06 250 for a 20 foot enclosed which is a paper weight to these trucks. Thanks, Ben

Depends on how often you will be towing? If it's often I'd go dually if not more than a couple times a year I'd go F-350 single rear wheel.

Dually, if you tow it often.
Check your weights.

Talked with a state trooper in WI, they will make you unhook and then you have to get right truck to tow trailer or hire someone.

That big of a trailer I'd want a DRW.

I keep leaning to the DRW option because of the size, but I won't be towing all of it but a couple of times, I will usually pull it with one 'stang and racing equipment at I would guess 16,000 pounds? That's why I think a SRW will be ok with some towing mods.

How many miles do you figure while your towing this 48' trailer? No "towing mods" will give you the stability and safety of a DRW truck.

"towing mods" won't put more tires on the ground and thats what you need pulling that kind of weight.
