To carry that weight you need either tandem dual or triple axle. I have a PJ tandem dual that has been very good. I pull it with my '06 6.0 super duty, with no problem with max legal load. I bought this one right, just two years old, but you can expect to pay a lot more for duals than triaxle. You will be told to stay a way from a triaxle because they scrub tires on sharp turns. but you can buy a new pair of tires every other year for some years before you make up the difference of duals. Also the triaxle is more stable due to more tires under the outside edge. The triaxle has no inner tires to give you headaches and it has 50% more brakes.

Yep - I sure like my triple axle for the reasons you mentioned, even though I've about worn it to a frazzle.

Plus, I just never let myself get into a tight spot while loaded. I've found minimizing tight turns with a load on is the single best thing to maximize tire life on my tri-axle and I've hauled a lot of really heavy loads with it.
