I have same truck with 2016 275ULSPS. I would get a blue Ox 20,000 lb WDH. It will use your class 5 receiver you have built in your truck and support up to 2000 lb tongue weight. truck will pull it without issues.

I been looking @ them online . I`d be pulling it with a 16 3500 drw ram . I think empty the tongue weight is in the 1800 range . So my Equalizer hitch would be out of the question.

I don't own one, but I do know that they are HEAVY. Hitch weight is a bit over 1800 lbs. I could pull it with my F250 but I think I would want a SWD 1 ton for this size trailer. I should clarify that I am not concerned with being at the upper weight limit for a vehicle. They are rated for it. However it does not leave much room for the unexpected.

I tow a 30wrs with a 2005 ram 2500. Tongue weight is 1450-1600 with no cargo, (I only hall kayaks in the back) measured by my sherline scale. I don't have a generator in the front so add some weight for that, if you option for one, since it is mounted in the front. I had to add a class 5 hitch as well as upgrade the shank and trunnion bars. When I bought my trailer the dealer had a 34wrs on the lot. They have been available for a few years as a custom order even though they just recently showed up on the website. It was the same exact configuration as a 30wrs with 4 feet added to the back. This put more weight behind the rear axle so the tongue weight was actually less. I don't have specific numbers since a 40 foot trailer wasn't something I was considering.
Also, for those that are curious, I checked my tongue weight as I filled the fresh water tank. As you start filling tongue weight decreases 25-50lbs, then evens out, then increases by 25-50lbs with a full tank (110 gallons). It is not affected very much since it is positioned between the rear axles.

I bought a Sherline scale for this purpose. Unfortunately it arrived with a broken dial and needle, when I called for a replacement they sent me the wrong one. I said screw it and just go by feel. I upgraded my hitch significantly anyways and it toes like a dream without a WDH. Insinuate air bags though so.

Got the scale. Tried it on my car trailer. Loaded it with 2.5tons of gravel . Tongue weight was 1500 lbs. Found out my tongue jack was good for 1505. Lol. It rained before I got to unload it and jack bent. Hhmm guess I need to buy a bigger tongue jack. Lol
