Mud - my previous TV was a '12 Ram 3500 (with 4:10 gears) nearly identical to yours towing a KZ Stoneridge 42' toy hauler. Your're going to love the way it tows and stops especially with the exhaust brake. Only thing I found was my pin weight was enough to compress the rear springs to the point where the helper springs were just barely engaged. Even small bumps would result in a po-go like bounce. I added air lift bags and inflated them just enough to keep the suspension off the helpers and the ride was noticeably better. I don't know about Texas, but in New York I had to get an "R" endorsement on my driver's license since the GVWR of the truck and trailer was over 26,000 pounds. The test was not hard, but they did make me parallel park a 42' trailer!

Good looking truck.
That Cummins will still be running when the rest of the truck has
gone to the junk yard.
Have a good time camping.

Thanks MK. I just seen the weather forecast and they are say possible heavy rain and thunder storms. Tired of the flooding but we may just go anyway it's hilly where we want to go.

Looks like our BART (Big Ass Red Truck)...ours is a 2014 with the same options but doesn't have the Aisin transmission. It towed our son's 2014 Windjammer 3025w and DH said he couldn't even feel it behind him. Then went on our shakedown cruise towing the 2015 Coachmen Chaparral 360IBL which isn't as big as yours, but BART handled it without a blink. We really like the truck in all aspects, especially mileage, and look forward to hearing about your adventures.

Sweet ride! I have a 2010 Ram 2500 Laramie mega-cab 4X4 with 6.7 and have been very happy with it. Pulls 38' Wildcat very well and get about 10 mpg and 15 when not towing. Mine uses fuel for re gene not DEF. So your mpg should be better than mine. I think you will be very happy with your truck. Click image for larger version

Very nice unit. I have a 2010 Laramie 4x4 2500 installed air bags. It tows great and you will love the engine brake in the mountains. Enjoy!
