I purchased my Ram 1500 last year with the intention of pulling my Surveyor SV305. The Outdoorsman badge let me get all the Towing options on the truck without getting into a higher priced truck. Truck is rated for 10,200 but all my towing with this truck is within 1 hr of home. In fact it gets towed 20 miles to our seasonal site and then gets towed home. I have the WDH that I bought from Princess Auto with #1200 bars and a single sway control. This seems to work fine but I do avoid towing on windy days if I can help it. If I need to go further I will borrow Dad's Duramax 3/4 ton. Behind the diesel, I don't even know its back there.
Should also say that the truck has 3.93 rear end and 20 wheels, heavy duty shocks and heavy duty tranny cooler
