Ok, Hi Everyone, new here to the forum, already introduced myself in the Noob section and after reading through a lot of the forum threads I would like to know if there are folks here on the Ram Forum who are currently using a 3.7l truck to pull a Travel Trailer?
The Wife and are looking to buy a trailer here in the next week or so for traveling far and wide. After extensive searching and also having the sales person look it up, I would be limited to a 3800LB GVWR and 500LB tongue weight Max. trailer.
My SXT is an '08 3.7l with towing package. Just got her last week used. Very clean and runs super.
I have read about 'tilt up mirrors' (?) in some of the threads, my truck doesn't have them. I retired last year working for the City of Canton, OH and I do have extensive experience pulling trailer from small utility to beaver tail. If the truck I used had (what I call) 'truck mirrors' then that's what I used. If the truck had standard mirrors then that what I used.
When you say tilt up mirror do you mean the type that is split somewhere in the middle and one part can angle every-which-way from the other? I have used that type too but I regard them as a pain. Pardon my ignorance, Please!
Well, does anyone have experience pulling Ultra-Lights? So far everything I have looked at have single axels and I need to ask before I buy do they come with trailer brakes? If so, fine. If not, how stable does the trailer feel going down long highway grades. How does it feel against your truck?
All of my small utility trailering has been on city streets with no highway. My double axle trailering of large utility trailers and up have all had trailer brakes and I have done highway trailering.
In order to keep the GVWR within my limit requires me to have a single axle trailer. From experience the roads out West and to the east of here do get pretty steep.
Pardon the long Question. It may look like a lot of little questions but really it's a big one. Lou.
