  1. LD RAM - General Discussion
    My son is interested in buying a family member's RAM to tow a small couples trailer, but I was surprised to find the low tow rating of 4400, and max payload of 1794. The rear axle gearing is 3.21, and has the 8-speed transmission. It already has the electric trailer brake controller. He would...
  2. Towing
    So, I have been going back and forth, literally losing sleep over this first world problem. I'm looking at a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab 4x4 with the 8 speed 3.21 rear end (payload 1510, max trailer weight 7,990). Our rig is a Keystone Cougar X-Lite 29bhs that comes in at 32.5 total...

    I was just curious what folks were getting for mileage with their loaded trailers. I have always been curious what the ecodiesel would get towing a similar load, but, that would require the 3.92 gears to get about 8500# max towing. I have the 8 speed trans, 5.7, and 3.21 gears. On my last trip...

  7. Prospective Buyers - Question and Answer Forum
    Hi. I have been looking at Rams for several months now. Owned one years ago and liked it. Here's my dilema. I want to put a popup slide-in camper in the bed (preferably 4-Wheel Campers model) which weighs about 1700-1800 lbs loaded. That pretty much maxes out a 1500 payload from what I read. But...
