2016 Laramie Longhorn 2WD

I tow my 30 ft flying cloud with one. This is my second Ram. I get them equipped with maximum towing capability. I like the 2016 better than the 2011 I had because of more gears in the transmission. They both tow well handle well and stopped well. I added Air bags to the rear of my 2016 to fine tune the ride height the final half inch after setting up the WD hitch.

We tow ours with a 2016 EcoDiesel Ram. Could not be happier. 14 MPG average towing handles it so well. BUT did upgrade to the ProPride hitch. Can't wait to be on the road again this summer. I have the factory air suspension.

Husky centerline with 8 to 1200 or 1000 to 1400 pound spring bars will work well. Timber Grove axle to frame airbag will complement the WDH well. Bring wet AS to Cat scale adjust WDH & WD in TV & TT until you replace steer weight 3200 or more & have drive axle down to 3900. Make sure TW is in 10 to 15 percent range. Loaded TV combined axle weight less unloaded TV combined axle weight for actual seen or scaled TW. (This is because WDH is dynamic TW not static TW) Divide this number by gross trailer weight. The result is the TW percentage. Now AS will tow well and truck will stop & handle safe & stable as Mfg designed.

You can also verify CVW, receiver weight, & GVW from your scale slips. Cost is often only $12 & $2 per additional weigh. Cheap IMO for your families safety. Cat has free app with locator & gps directions. Add air to bags at the Cat scale AFTER reasonable best WD has been achieved. You will need Hemi or fuel efficient Ecodiesel as the wet AS will likely be above Max tow & CVWR of the 3.6. If you only have the 5/6 speed you will want the 3.92. The 8 speed tows dramatically stronger & more efficiently. Tow mirrors, hitch camera, & TBC are all nice helpful options make towing a TT better.

We have towing our 26 RB twin with Ram 1500 rear wheel drive without any problems
It has 3.92 rear axle, added Air springs and Bill stein shocks to improve ride quality on uneven roads. We use Blue ox sway pro hitch that keeps trailer really stable in all conditions encountered so far
