    Tow vehicle

    Hi, I have pretty much set my mind on the Ram 2500 cummins short bed crew cab, and i am realizing the the payload capacity really sucks. I am going back and forth between the Reflection 337 and 303rls. the 337 is gonna put me over payload a bit. does anyone pull a 337 with the Ram that can give me input? Also i heard the Ram makes the 303rls ride nose high (not level). Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks Rodney

    Rodney: You didn't say if you were going 4x2 or 4x4. A 4x2 would more apt to ride level vs. the 4x4.

    And you now see what a bastard truck a 3/4 ton truck is with around a 2500 lb. weight capability. And with a 5th wheel, it's the Pin weight that matters. These have plenty of power to tow any Reflection fifth wheel.

    I have a F250 crewcab diesel towing a 323BHS that is about the same weight as the 337--11K dry weight and 2K pin weight. With AirRide airbags and a 60 hp tow tuner, it handles the job well. If you don't travel heavy in the cab and truck bed, your truck should do the job.

    While I would have like to have bought a "full size" fifth wheel, a 323BHS suits my needs perfectly--other than not being able to use my RV washer and dryer. I'm not exactly roughing it.

    Getting a 4x4, so it will be higher. Yes, really sucks that the payload capability is so low. I like to be legal, but it makes it hard with this setup. I figure pack as light as possible in the basement and I will still be over 500 to 600 lbs.
