I am towing a 34RL Cedar Creek with a Dodge/Ram Mega Cab. The trailer tows like a dream.I do not even notice the trailer when it is being towed, other than the trailer blocking the rear view mirror in the truck. For my model year this has the same wheel base as a long bed truck, but uses a short bed (6.4) box behind the cab.
I did have a manual slider Reese hitch that lasted 10 years before the hitch need to be replace. I replaced this hitch with a DEMCO GLIDE Hitch which is an auto slider hitch. The reason I went with the DEMCO GLIDE Hitch is this does not require a capture plate with the TRAILAIR RIDE PIN BOX like the Pull rite needs.
The DEMCO GLIDE will also work with the puck system on the new RAM trucks or mount to the STANDARD RAILS if so, equipped.
