Hi everyone,I am new to this site,and looking for a little advice on a new truck.I am looking at purchasing a new 2017 350 or 450 dually for my business,I haul sawdust for horse bedding,I currently have a 2016 Silverado 3500HD dually which I am keeping,a majority of my loads weigh right around 12-16,000lbs,but 2-5 Loads a week weigh in at 22-24,000lbs behind the truck,it puts my chevy to the max ratings and over a little,so I am looking at a new 2017 f350 reg cab dually or 450,both have gooseneck tow ratings north of 30,000,any advice for my main hauling truck would be helpful,thanks.

With your goosneck you must be close to 30k if not over unless you included trailer weight in your numbers. If you didn't include trailer weight, go 450. If you did then go 350.
