Default 2500 Ram 5.9 Diesel Towing Capacity

I am new to the forum and this is my first question. I purchase a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Big Horn Edition SLT Quad Cab 4X4 with the 5.9 HO Cummins Turbo Diesel and an axile ratio of 3.73 new in 2007. Now that I've finally got her paid for I am looking to pull a Fifth Wheel Camper. I've gone to the Dodge Truck Website, asked the dealer, searched the internet, and talked to the folks at several Camper Dealerships. They all give me a different number regarding the towing capacity of my truck. Is there anyone on the Forum that can tell me how to go about finding out the towing and hauling capacity of my truck? I would really appreciate any help that I can get. Thanks.
Captain Ron.

you have to do some mathematics & most of the information that you need should be on your drivers door or door post
things that you will need are on the metal tag, this website pretty well explains it

Thanks for the info. I've read everything from 6000 lbs to 20,000 lbs. Capt. Ron.
