If I'm not mistaken, when i put this thread up, I asked the question, what are people towing the 36ckts with. Why do we go in other directions when it has nothing to do with the subject.

I think payload capacity and stability has everything to do with the subject

I was only concerned that I need the dually because it will give me the recommended 20% allowance that I need for the heavier cedar creek 36ckts. I'm aware that the difference between the 3/4 and 1ton single wheel is minimal.

Total Bliss,

I bought my 2014 CC, long box 6.7 cummings DRW Ram in July for roughly $35700 US. It was new, had 360kms on it, basic truck with air, tilt, cruise, power lock doors and tailgate, integrated tow brake and a few other items like plow prep package. Does not have the Aisian tranny, has a payload of 5793pds per the door sticker and can haul 18900 pd trailer.

be a great truck to haul that camper, I use it as a daily driver but do not put on a lot of miles a year, maybe 5k.

You don't need a new dually to safely pull a new 36ckts. Trucks are at their best at their rated load. That means they handle properly and ride properly and are safe. Newer trucks are rated to haul more and newer trailers are bigger and lighter. The RV industry would love to make all trailers half ton towable; they'd sell a lot more. More truck than you need is a waste of money and a more uncomfortable ride. Been there, done that.

Towing a 36CKTS with a 3/4 ton you have about 5000 lbs towing margin and 1000 lbs pin weight margin. Don't forget, your new truck is going have stability control, traction control, integrated , breaking control, exhaust brake, etc.

While we, the members, do try to keep the feedback on topic going off track does happen. Someone will comment upon one thing and someone else will add to it and so on. (And truck topics are a popular subject to start with.)

Thanks for bringing the topic back on point.

Are you going by the dry weight of the trailer? 36ckts has a max weight with cargo of 16,500. 3/4 and the 1 ton have a similar max tow at 17000. But maybe I am reading this wrong. I found it in the simple "Build and Price". How is this a 20% leeway. Again, maybe I am reading wrong. I also talked to the truck manager at Chevy, and also got the same answer. I researched through several forums. But again maybe I am figuring all wrong. But this seems to be a situation that can be argued based on pride and safety. I am done with this thread and I do appreciate your input. If you can give a web sight that says it is safe to pull the 36ckts with a 3/4 ton, please do. I am sure people will love that idea. Thanks again.

towing is not the same as carrying! While a 2500, heck a properly equipped 1500 might tow 17K easily enough they certainally will not have sufficient load carrying capacity to allow one to drop 3500+ pounds in the bed of the truck. It aint rocket science. Trucks GVWR minus scaled ready to travel weight will give you the real world cargo carrying capacity.

You need to look at the Gross axle weight rating on the rear axle. That is usually the limiting factor. I have a F250 and I am overweight on the rear axle with the 36CKTS.
