My 97 F350 4X4 CC non-dually carries my 4500# Alpenlite just fine. Rear axle weight is max'd out but no problems since 2002 when I bought the camper. Dually axle is rated for more i believe, so you will fine with only a 3000# camper payload. I have a 4:10 ratio rather than 3:73 on diff. You may want to consider that in your search. Also had a leaf spring pack made to replace the single OEM over-load leaf rather than air bags and when camper on truck loaded with all our crap inside, I'm level. Dually probably won't need that like my singe does with your camper weight, but many do go with bags even with duallys. My camper plus truck = 11,500lbs total and pulls all that just fine averaging 10-12mpg with 4:10 gears working like she was built for.
