Likewise I'm towing with 2015 Ram 1500 ecodiesel quad cab 6'4" bed. 3:92 rear axle ratio.
Tow 1998 31ft Classic with Air Safe Class VI and Reese W.D. hitch trunion bar/sway control hitch. We've towed 40 states past 4 years and 35,000 miles , all of the western mountain states. 15 mpg towing 8,600 lb travel trailer. 21 mpg city, 28---30 mpg highway trip myself, DW and 🐕. My payload is 1,610lbs, we travel light in TV and a little heavy in T.T. but not over its capacity. (By design) I'm waiting for the 2020 Ram 1500 ecodiesel looking to order a Crew cab this time . New and improved towing and increased payload via new design.. This is my daily driver and it's very nice ride. BTW. My previous T.V. was a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 with 5.9 Cummins, 2,970 payload. I did my research and homework for a year before I made this plunge. It's a Mini Mule when it comes to towing, and stopping also, for the "naysayers " out there. "To each his own" as the saying goes. Have a great day and "see you down the road "
