Asked by Aug 11, 2015 at 12:06 AM about the 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT 4dr Mega Cab SB

Question type: General

I have a 32 foot travel trailer. I want to get a Ram with a 5.9 L in it to pull the trailer. The
trailer is about 10000 lbs loaded. The terrain for towing around Calgary is flat, hills and the
mountains. What should i get a 2500 or a 3500 Ram.

1 Answer

83,705

Always a bigger truck is nicer all around for towing, but the 5.9 L Ram should be plenty for hauling this weight.
