Have a 3/4 ton dodge 5.7 litre pulling a 29 ft TT milage is about 7.5 am going to buy a new truck thinking that the dually diesel is the way to go should help with the sway in the wind and semis passing. Am I over doing it or will the dually be more stable??
Dually, might take some time to adjust to the daily driver thing. Knowing your limits is probably the biggest issue. With a 29" TT, a regular two wheel drive TV should be plenty. But when you start going over that 35' range, a dually might be a more stable platform. but again it is a personal choice. A fiver by far offers a more stable ride in all situations than a TT, even with all of that added safety hardware most TT owners use when on the road.
While you don't need a dually to tow the trailer you have now, the dually is certainly more stable and will allow you to pull a much larger fifth wheel trailer in the future, should you decide to go that way.
I towed my current TT with a F150 before. I thought that it was fine, but I just got through pulling my TT over 600 miles with my dually. Let me tell ya, there is a huge difference, I was worried about pulling through Atlanta during rush hour, we tried to plan around it, but we still managed to hit Atlanta at rush hour. The dually was exceptionally stable. Had a few times where I had to pass other vehicles and the dually was exceptionally stable. Had a situation where there were tractor trailers on both sides of me and I never felt out of control. If I can have anything to say about it, I will not pull a larger TT or Fiver without my dually again.
I thought the Weight Police were blowing smoke all those times they suggested a dually. Well, hate to tell ya but there is some truth to what they say. Those extra two tires provide 2x the contact patch in the back and are LT tires, they are extremely stable.

From what people say on this forum it sounds as though the older Dodges must be very unstable. I can't comment on the new Dodge SRW trucks but towing a 15 - 16 thousand pound RV with the new Ford you can not tell that there is a trailer behind you without looking in the mirror or at the fuel mileage screen. Stability is a non issue.
