The towing capacity of your 2015 Ram 3500 will vary based on engine size, cab configuration, drive type, axle ratio, and GVWR. If you can provide me with these additional metrics then I would be happy to look this up for you but there is a trailer towing guide with this information that is available to the public from Ram. According to my research, these towing capacities can vary from 12,020 lbs to 30,000 lbs so it is possible that your truck can handle the trailer you wish to pull but I would not be able to confirm without additional information.

I assume you already have a gooseneck trailer hitch on your Ram 3500 but what you might not have is a set of airbags. If you do not then I recommend you add them, the Firestone Ride-Rite Red Label Extreme Duty Air Helper Springs part # F2705 in particular. These airbags are going to allow you to really dial in the ride on your Ram while towing. If you need more support then you will simply put more air into the bags but if you feel the ride is getting too rough then you can simply take air out. These airbags are going to be essential for long hauls with heavy trailers. I also recommend using the Firestone Air Command I part # F2097 so you can make adjustments on the go.
