Is there any difference in ride quality in a dually vs. a SRW that you guys have noticed? I heard someone say that their dually had a smoother ride than the SRW.

I have an 03 F350 Dually with the 6.0 PS and have to say she is very stable even with cross winds while towing. Fuel mileage is slightly less than a comparable SRW maybe 1-1.5MPG and that's debatable due to driving conditions and load conditions. Yes you do have two extra tires to replace but your rear axel is a lot heavier and more stable. Also if you get a blow out you still can make it to a safe location to change your tire while not loosing your stability with your load. Last trip in the mountains and through stop and go traffic was 12 MPG towing. I have a 4" turbo back exhaust mod which gives me 2 MPG better towing and local driving. Yes the ride can be rough when not under load but when I'm towing my rig I am in complete control and assured that my family is safe if I get a blowout under the load. Turning radius is the same as SRW just you have the extra width to deal with so I get a little more execise walking to the store fronts.
