I can, but not comfortably. I have a 32foot travel trailer that weighs 8000lbs empty. When it and the truck is all loaded up I'm over weight. if I was just doing "local" towing I wouldn't be worried, but we've planned trips now all over. If I'm towing 10,000 I want to do it without concernThe Ram Rebel isn't able to tow and carry what you need?
My company is slowly switching from Chevrolets to Rams. We've had radiators done, fuel pumps, gauge clusters, radio head units…. And the transmissions are stuttering like MAD in overdrive right now.Good luck.
That's the main reason I don't buy Fords. Watched two different Fords catch fire while unattended in a parking lot over the course of a year. Both of them were new, one a few months, and one just 2 days off the dealer lot. This was during a time when I was actually considering replacing an old Grand Cherokee with a Ford pickup. Tossed that idea right out the window. Last thing I need is a ticking fire bomb parked in my garage. Fords still have that problem today.Ram isn't known for quality. You can search any manufacturer and find millions of people having issues with every brand. I am not by any means a brand loyal guy. Ram had a chance to keep my, but they wouldn't step up to the plate.
Surprisingly I was only upside down $1150 bucks. I got out of my lease 2 1/2 years early. I didn't take nearly the bath that I expected. Oh another note, did that other headlight ever show upWow! Better research on the type of vehicle you need vs. want. @ any rate good luck, but prepare to take a haircut on trade in.
Don't overlook the new Power Wagon. One of my sons owns a 2014 Ram 2500 with the Cummins. He loves it.After 6 months and 3000 miles I'm already getting rid of it. I'm in need of a 3/4 ton diesel and I couldn't make a deal on a ram, so I'm getting a 3/4 Denali with the duramax.
The power Wagon has a surprisingly low tow rating of 10050lbs and I would have bought a cummins if they would have made me a deal, but they wouldn't. I really wanted a cummins engine over the duramaxDon't overlook the new Power Wagon. One of my sons owns a 2014 Ram 2500 with the Cummins. He loves it.
Thank youYeah. The Power Wagon is not really for towing anything more than a medium size trailer. It has too many things added onto it to leave enough for the tongue weight of a 9000+ lbs trailer. It's built to go off-road more than to tow heavy loads.
For towing anything over 7000-8000 lbs I'd look at more than a 1/2 ton anymore. Between GVWR and authority over the load you need more truck. The GVWR numbers advertised are BS most of the time. It's become a marketing tool for people who like to check numbers instead of real world performance.
I don't care what brand you chose. You needed a bigger truck and it's good you didn't pay much of a price for your mistake. I hope the GMC serves you well.
