typack372 is on a distinguished road
Default Need your opinion please

I just signed up so hello. I am looking at a 2009 Ram 2500 SLT Hemi with the tow package. I have a 26' travel trailer that weighs 6300lbs dry and an 18.5' boat that weighs 3700lbs loaded. Here in Saskatchewan it is legal to pull trains and that is what I would like to do. The roads here are mostly flat and the longest trip would only be about 4-5 hours each way and I would only pull this combo 4-5 times a year. In your opinion will the gas 2500 I am looking at be able to handle the 11000lb load? Thanks for your time.

Should be able to, but is it safe to do so? I dont know. LOL. I have pulled 11k with a 1500 (didnt go very far), and it was awful. Thats heavy.
