Agreed here, distributing the load across the axles is key, and shifting weight to the rear of the trailer for the sole purpose of removing sag is a recipe for ditch-ville. That’s why when we pull double/triples the lightest trailer goes in the back.
I’d have to agree. For a trailer that size, I’d definitely want an HD for the extra strength and braking power alone. I’ve borrowed my buddy’s trailer that was around 7000 lbs loaded up on a few occasions, and my 1500 did ok (same exact specs as OP), but my F250 6.7 was a world of difference in the handling and braking dept.
I think yours will give you all that you’re looking for. Stick with the proven platform! Also I was pretty sure the new 10-speed is a GM designed and manufactured unit with Allison branding, while yours is Allison design and mfg. if that makes any difference to you. Time will tell how the new one holds up.
