Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Towing a 7800 lb Trailer


I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 5.7L Hemi Quad Cab No factory hitch. I need to tow my new 2014 Coleman travel trailer. It weighs 7800# My Truck can tow up to 9200# Can you please advise me of the kind of hitch you would recommend? I am looking through your site and Im ready to buy . I just am not sure of which one.


Expert Reply:

The Curt Hitch part # 14361 that you referenced would be a great hitch for your 2005 Dodge Ram 1500. I checked with Curt and this hitch will fit your truck as long as it is not a 6 foot bed.

If you do have a 6 foot bed you could get the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75420 as this is a similar hitch that would work with a 6 foot bed.

Both hitches have enough capacity for your trailer.
