I've been using an Equal-i-zer brand WD hitch since 2007. Once it is set up properly the first time, it's fairly easy to connect & disconnect. My trailer fully loaded is about 5,500 lbs, but I do...

Your questions are a very much 'it depends.' You should have a Class IV hitch on your truck. Most of all the towing info on your truck should be nearly the same as the 2013 info. You can find...

In my opinion your biggest issue is weight. With my 2013 (Crew Cab, 6-speed, 3.92 rear) I pull a 24-foot trailer. Loaded it's about 4,500 lbs, tongue weight right at 600 lbs. My truck pulls it...

Just returned from a 3,500 mile mostly-highway trip. My 2013 has a 6-speed with 3.92 rear and stock 20" tires. Cruising mostly at 75-80 mph I noticed the hemi was turning at about 2,000 - 2,100 rpm.

Canadian prices

Well, didn't know that! If it's a good price for you, then it's a good price. It looks like a fairly decent Laramie - not with all options & not with air, but if you like it that's what counts. ...
