Re: [RC] Dually or not? - Julie Gelderman

Personally I would insist on a dually carrying that kind of weight.  Since you are already driving a dually you know they are very, very stable.  If you can, try borrowing a single axle and carry/pull the same weight and see the difference.  I bet you will notice a significant/negative difference.
I LOVE my dually and wouldn't want to drive anything else.

Subject: [RC] Dually or not?

We are looking for a truck here in BC Canada to carry a 9' camper and to tow a 3 horse BP stock trailer.  Do we really need a dually for stability for the camper?   Is that the only benefit of a dually?    We currently drive a 1994 GMC 1 ton dually gas but it doesn't seem to have enough power/torque for the big hills and its killing us in gas.  Gas here on Vancouver Island in BC Canada is $1.17  per litre.
We would like to find a Duramax diesel but they are like gold around here.
