We have an 2011 25' FC and pull it with an 05 Silverado 1500 5.3L with no problem. When I ordered the truck I ordered the 3.73 rear axle and I believe that makes a huge difference in towing. In Florida, I can tow in overdrive but in mountains I have to run in regular drive. While not a Ford or Dodge, it pulls the A/S with no problem. Gas mileage is normally around 11 MPG and in mountains it's 9-10. I drive at the speed limit while towing and my mileage increases considerable if I drive only at 55 MPH. Congratulations on the new A/S.

Welcome to the group. We have a 27' FB also and you will love the floor plan. Lots of room and storage. We tow our AS with a Tundra (5.7L) and it pulls it without any problems, I am sure your Ram won't have any problems.

Safe travels,
