Re: [RC] Duallys - Mary Sutliff

We drive our Dodge Dually all over the narrow dirt and gravel roads here in Washington's Cascade mountains with no problems.  We're pulling a four horse bumper pull often loaded to the hilt.  The problem I have seen at some of our more remote trailheads is that the craze for the newer living quarters trailers means that those folks can't get in the places they want to go & when they do manage to get to those trailheads they have an awful time getting out.
Our dually does have 4 wheel drive but we rarely use it.

Here in E. Tennessee the dually's can't cut it when you get into our twisting, narrow, gravel, mountain roads.  They need more room to maneuver.  Also I wouldn't own on without 4 wheel drive.  We continually have to pull my borders dually out of the flat barn lot if it is the least bit muddy.  We have to tow him to the gravel.  I don't know what the deal is about it spinning in the mud, but we don't have to use the 4 wheel drive on our regular axle trucks when we are all parked in the same places.  But now out on the highway it is another whole story, the dually's feel so stable but it is rare that I drive the interstate.  Linda
