2013 292 BHDS Freedom Express Liberty Edition
Well, we are all settled in with our "new to us" 2013 292 BHDS Freedom Express. Now (still), the towing dilemma... We would love to have a 3/4 ton and I know there would be no issues towing this camper with a 3/4. But, a half ton would be better, day to day. We are considering a 2013 Ram 1500 with 3.92 axle ratio, with towing package. The dry weight of the trailer is 6500. The Ram is rated to just over 10k towing capacity. The payload of the truck leaves a lot to be desired, at about 1500 lbs, if I recall.
I've read and read and read these forums. I know and respect the calculations. So I'm wondering, in real life, those of you that have this trailer.... What are you towing it with and how does it do? Does anyone tow this trailer with a 1/2 ton and are you comfortable with it, or are you all upgrading to a 3/4 ton?
You all have been very helpful along our journey into the camping world. Thanks in advance for all your replies.
