duggerdugger6 is on a distinguished road

I have a 2000 1500 magnum v8 5.2l auto quad cab. I guessing it is a lot like yours. and like randy says it is a dog under a load. it pulls an empty 18' car hauler without much effort (guess 1800lbs). it also seemed all right with pulling a 16' trihull fish boat (guess 2500lbs). it has a really hard time with the 21' ski/wakeboard boat (guess 4500lbs). I would check the truck tow capacity vs. the weight of 30' camper. I think my 30' bumper pull weighs 6900lbs. I have not tried to pull it with the dodge. hope this helps.
