neema said:Funnily enough, I was deciding between 38' and 45' (!!!) Featherlites. Both were great deals, but I don't have the kind of towing capacity for a 45 footer. That's dually territory. So I guess I'm stuck with the baby 38'
I've had a series of trailers, the most recent was a 40' ATC gooseneck aluminum race series.
Following the same "dually required" approach, I bought one of those too (06 F350 diesel) only to realize later the dually actually wasn't required.
The dually and single axle F350 had the same exact tow capacity. The only difference was the cargo capacity.
Long story short, I ditched the dually (and the bigger expense of commercial plates & insurance) and went back to a single axle F350.
Best tow combo I've ever had the pleasure of owning. Averaged 14 mpg loaded and with the crewcab...no complaints on space.
