I think this setup only makes sense if you have a rig under 4000lbs loaded, though, and closer to 3 than 4. Geos, light CJs, buggies, that kind of thing. For those cases, saving 800-1000lbs makes a bigger difference, than when you've got something thats 5500lbs + 2000lb trailer.
Yup, and these differences in numbers can be dictated with the load rating of the tire and trailer spindle. That is the big advantage of the dually setup.
