I just read an article in Feb. 2015 issue of Car and Driver comparing the new F-150, Silverado, Ram 1500 and Tundra. According to the editors of this magazine, the new F-150 rated the highest overall. No doubt a very good truck.

But what struck me was the Ram 1500 they tested was equipped exactly like mine yet it had a payload rating, as tested, of 1530 pounds. I'm not sure how this was calculated but that payload rating gives me ample capacity with an AS with a tongue weight of about 800 pounds. It appears as though I'm overthinking the payload issue. I should now decide which AS we would like to have and move on.

Thanks to everyone for your collective input. It has been very helpful and it is sincerely appreciated.

We haul a 1800 lb slide in camper we use in our Ram 1500 w airride. Works great. Pay close attention to the ride quality comment in the C/D article. Test drive all 3 if u have not. The air ride has amazing ride and you are always level.
