    sorry for delay. Can't figure how to answer message, hope this gets to you. We tow a 30 Classic with our 1500 Ram with full tow package and 5.7. So far it's fine. Previosly towed a 2019 GT 25. Didn't know it was behind me. But we have not yet been to the Rockies with the Classic

    Nice to hear from you! What length is your new GT?

    We actually had the exact same truck as yours before getting the 2500. You can read about what happened here.

    We *really* wanted the 1500 to work but the payload was just too low (1220 lbs.). We picked up the GT from the dealer with the 1500 and found it had plenty of power but after going to the CAT scales, found the GAWR (gross axle weight rating) for the rear axle was within 100 lbs. of max. We took a short trip and at times felt like the tail was wagging the dog. After 7 months of negotiating, the dealer and RAM agreed to buy the truck back.

    I wrote more but had to delete - over the limit. If you'd like to talk more about your questions I'd be glad to take your call. I'll provide my private email too.

    All the best,
