    I have hauled over 15k with mine on 35's over 600 miles.
    Check the brakes on the trailer & make sure your brake controller is set right. You shouldnt have any problems.
    Also check the condition & air pressure in the tires.

    The truck shouldn't have any problem, just make sure the trailer is rated for it, everything is working properly, and the person driving knows what they're doing.

    Go for it. When I picked up 3 k30's for Wes I had a guy with a 48' gooseneck and F250 haul 2 of them. I believe they weigh about 6k apiece + the trailer = more than the dually F350 is rated for in the magazine adds. That was in addition to driving in the rain. No problems were experienced and I found a new respect for Ferds.

    Iloadmine down with a 30 foot goosneck (a very heavy one) with two heavy rigs and a bed full of wood and gear and a small camper on the neck. Pulls great!!
