Default Question about towing, 2001 Ram 1500 5.2L


I'm new to the truck world, just picked up a 2001 RAM 1500 5.2L Magnum 3 door (is that a club or a quad cab?) short bed automatic. Needs a slight bit of work but runs pretty solid for the most part. Now the question is, I'm looking to pick up a third gen Camaro for something to fix up, and I found a deal on one that's approx. 40 miles from where I live. Tow trucks are too expensive, so I wanted to see about maybe renting a dolly and towing it, but I know ziltch about towing with a pickup truck... I see in the rear bumper where it has the hole(s) for a ball hitch, is it that simple to bolt up a heavy ball hitch to the bumper and towing the car with the dolly? The weight of the Camaro should be around 3100-3200lbs...

Any help/advice would be appreciated...
