They are not much larger than a standard 3500 just wider at the hips, no wider than your trailer. On a 10í bridge I would have had 1í on each side lots of room.
My DW drives ours all time without issue, DD drives here a lot and tows 4 horse GN trailer with living quarters.
Hair pin curve you missed my point . I made it through with in a few inches with sharp turn. I get my toyhuler out of the poll barn around 10 KMiles a year . This trip is right at 6 k when finished . I expect your DW has more skill then because of your negative thinking . Confidence is the key but a Dully will not go where a SRW my point stands firm.

96 inches is 96 inches, 102 inches is 102 inches. If the trailer fits, so does the dually when it comes to width...

Now if you're talking length then it ain't all that applicable to the extra wheels...

His point I think was that the DUALLY is exactly the same width as the trailer so if the DUALLY won't go neither will the trailer making the SRW, DRW decision moot.

going straight but I can tell you the SRW will make it through tighter narrow area radius with a fifer then DRW.
That is my point .

Correct fifer length is a factor . I missed the sign nothing over 22 foot but the ranger was impressed with my driving skills but not with the damage I did to some tree limbs . I’m glad the mistake took place in Tennessee and not California. I’m just thankful I don’t have a dully.

our truck is the only vehicle we have so I would Never get a dually...they are a pain as far as I can see. I SRW will do just fine.
Well it is all personal preference, there is a point which a 5er becomes too much for a SRW.
Our DRW is also our only vehicle, no it isnít a Smart Car, but the more we drive it the smaller it gets. I donít make it a habit to park in the front row at the grocery store or hardware store, but have done it many times.
