Joined Club Dually!

After pulling our 375BHFS a few hundred miles, we decided a dually would be a good idea. We now have two weekend trips (~250 miles) with the dually and are very happy with the change. Our previous TV was a 2012 F350 6.7L SRW CCLB FX4, our new TV is a 2016 F350 6.7 DRW CCLB FX4. Although the SRW had plenty of power to pull the camper, the dually feels much more stable and not like there is a competition with the camper to see who gets to drive - it or me!

You will find many times when you will be so happy you stepped up and purchased the dually. Congratulations on a great truck.

Biggest reasons we've pretty much always had a dually. Towing stability, pin weight (mostly with the fifth wheels we've had), and that extra set of tires in the event of a rear blowout. Wife won't have anything smaller than what we have in a tow vehicle, plus I like a truck with hips anyway. You have a very good combo there. Enjoy.

Sure like our Dually. Much more stable in the wind. We wouldn't be without one now. And it's my daily driver too.

I'd love a dually! But can't afford the house payment!

We went thru Costco and got it for a bargain.

Great looking truck! I'll bet you're a walking ear to ear grin now.

My husband pulls a large enclosed gooseneck for work everyday so the pickup will spend the vast majority of its life hooked up to his work trailer or the camper. I did have the pleasure of putting the break-in miles on it and I had no problems with the ride, parking, or some of the other things I've read people commenting about. It wasn't much different than driving our SRW.


Thanks for all the positive feedback. We sure are happy with it
