09 Crew Cab & Fifth wheel?

Anyone know if a Crew Cab Ram 1500 4X4 will be able to tow a 5th wheel camper since the bed is only 5'7"?

You cannot tow a 5th wheel with the 2009 crew cab. You need either a quad cab or regular cab.

Thanks for the welcome. I come to find out some CC owners are towing fifth wheels with low pin weights of 550 pounds or so. My dealer told me it was a no-no per Dodge, and showed me paperwork to that effect at the time of purchase. Reluctantly that paperwork didn't come with the purchase, and the owners manual is useless as a reference.

So take your chances if you want.

No the ram 1500 is not capable of handling a fifth wheel. The rear suspension is coil springs - coils are not load capacity support, just soft ride.

Depends on the size of the trailer. There are 5th wheel travel trailers built to be towed with a 1/2 ton.
