I think the setup FORDT and I have is the best as far as power (LBZ),6spd tranny with the tapshift and it downshifts pretty good when slowing down, EGR (no DPF) etc etc..ive pulled triple axle toy haulers and 42ft boats (close to or more then 15Klbs) with mine all over the country doing what your going to be doing. Never seemed like it was under load much.
Your idea of going with a dually is good and bad. I have found out both. Towing, its awesome, hardly no sway in the wind and even with a triple axle toy hauler it didnt squat much if any. The bad, re-selling a dually is alot harder then a SRW truck. Gotta find that "special someone" that wants one.
PS, that truck you linked is exactly what we have...interior and all..just differant colors. goodluck
