I would not want to tow anything really nice with exhaust straight out the back like that. I have heard stories of the exhaust making whatever you are towing get real dirty real fast.

been towing stuff for 8 years with pipes going straight out the back and never noticed a thing. I have towed a fiberglass boat (More than anything else), a fiberglass dog trailer, an steel four wheeler trailer, a car trailer with a cadillac on it, a bunch of sleds, and I have never seen a thing. The only way I think it could be any worse than if the pipes are coming out the sides are, if the tongue was only like 6 inches long or something. The exhaust is so disbearsed by the the point it will reach the trailer it really has no effect, unless you have bad rings or something and there is an oil mist coming out from the truck, but if that is the case you got some serious issues, let alone it would stiil do it if your truck had side exits, except it would coat the sides instead of the front.

The only thing I have ever noticed that changed from having the side exit to straightout the back, is when you have a topper, on cold days the moisture in the exhaust will fog up the rear window. This is only with a topper though as their is a vaccum formed which holds the exhaust there for longer than normal. This can be remedied by getting a wind deflecter like old station wagons had, but I never cared, I can't see crap out the rear window on normal days, when you are looking through three planes of tinted glass.
