The 264MHW and 23MB are similar in weight: both have GVWR=6500 lb. Does the extra 3' on the 264BHW make that much of a difference in towing. I have a Ram1500 V8/8Spd/3.21 and max towing = ~8k with 3 people.
id pull one first, high gear ratios are not towing friendly. My GMC Sierra 5.3 6spd trans and 3.42 gear struggled pulling my 2016 26bhw. 60 mph was a struggle on small hills. Needless to say I had to change tow vehicles. Got a 2015 f250 6.2 gas, 6spd, and 3.73 gear. Pulls great.
