2008 Towing (Ram 2500)
Did paperwork (haven't yet completed or exchanged checks yet) on a new 2010 Roadwarrior 395 Toy Hauler.
Specs for towing are:
Hitch Weight 3,191 lbs
Dry Weight 13,272 lbs
Gross Weight 18,000 lbs
Axle Weight 18,000 lbs
Dodge Ram 2500 Capability:
Towing capacity: 13,600 pounds
Payload capacity: 3,350 pounds
Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR): 20,000 pounds
I've been quoted the 5th wheel hitch, 3 axle brake system and the Dodge mounting kit. Dealer says my truck should be able to tow no issue.
Looking at the numbers above, fully loaded, I'd be WELL over the GCWR of the truck by at least 5000 pounds (if the truck weighs 7500 pounds).
What's the real deal? Anybody have any insight? I don't have airbags and my 6.7L is stock.
