Because we use our truck empty a lot.
Such a long wide truck just isn't very handy for us.
That was our original situation. But our situation eventually changed to where we were not having to use the truck as our daily driver and we also wanted to tow a 7,000 lb car hauler while hauling our camper. At that point, a drw made sense for us.

Been there done that...Dealer told me my SRW would work out fine, but a white knuckle experience all the way. So from identical trucks, SRW to a dually the difference is amazing (think, day and night). Almost like having outriggers to aid stability. Driving one with a bigger TC is believing.
We switched to a dually 7 years ago and havent looked back. Absolutly no comparison between the two when it comes to heavy campers. It seems its a learning curve most just have to go through.
Congrats on the new truck.
