i have the same truck but a 2005 and it tows my 30' 5th wheel just fine
you should have no problem towing your rig, get a Hensley Arrow hitch if you can
they sell them in Davison Michigan ( local for you ) i have owned one and they are the best

I have a 2005 dodge ram 1500, quad cab, 4x4 with the 5.7 hemi. We bought a wildwood backpack, 26 ft this spring. While it sucks the gas when I am towing the camper, it will go anywhere. I live in Ohio and we have had it to Gatlinburg. I think you will be fine.

you'll have no problems towing the 233S with your Ram Hemi.

plenty of towing power that you won't even feel it, as long as you have a good WDH with sway control.

Agree with all of the above. You are doing a great job in understanding the numbers and I congratulate you for doing that.

I won't bother going through the math for you but you are good to go with your setup.

My rig is in my sig and works well. Your biggest concern is to make sure that you do not overload your truck bed to a point where your truck's payload capacity is exceeded.

You have slightly more payload than I do and I'm right at the limits with my SUV, family of 5 and the 233S. Its would be tempting to carry more in the bed if I had a pickup; that's why I mention it.

Again, you are asking all of the right questions in all of your threads before you buy. Your next post needs to be a hitch question
