    My wife an I are looking at gettin a new 5'er that weighs in at 12000 loaded. We know we need a new truck an are looking at a 2011 or newer dodge 3500 dully. We were just wondering if that will be enough truck to safely pull an stop that trailer.

    I should think you would have enough truck with the 3500 dually. Check with your local Dodge dealer or the owner's manual. Hopefully one of our trailer-towing folks will have more info and will answer your post better than I have.

    Depends on engine, tow package and rear axle ratio. Think the dully would be equiped to handle it.

    I have a 07 Dodge 2500 SRW and have no problems with my 10,000 pound 5er. A dually would be good for you. Make sure it is diesel, 3.73 rear end

    May want to check your local DMV. Your state may require special drivers license for over 10, 000 pounds
