    You could still tow a car hauler behind if your car doesn't fit in the bed.

    After picking up the former 949Racing 8.5 x 18 enclosed, it felt like the Durango R/T was having a hard time towing it...oil temp stays at 240-250 even just cruising on the fwy. I can't imaging what the oil temp would be climbing...let along going up grapevine.

    The trailer loaded with my Supermiata is 6700 LB. The maximum towing capacity for my Durango was 7400 LB, but this has a lot of aero drag.

    Anyhow, decided to pick this up last week:

    2017 Ram 2500HD 6.7 Cummins Diesel 4x4 Crew Cab 6.4 Bed. 6 Speed Automatic Tranny 3.42 Ratio Tradesman (didn't want any expensive electronics that would fail when car is out of warranty). Towing Capacity - 17,250 LB

    Options:
    Transfer case skid plate
    Chrome Appearance Group
    5th wheel / goose neck
    Electric Shift on the fly Transfer Case
    LED Bed Lighting
    Park Assist
    Back Up Camera
    Trailer Brake Controller
    UConnect 5.0
    Bed Liner ($500)

    MSRP $53,490. After discount & negotiations paid $42,590 + Tax & License

    Our Eldo had a 502 high comp engine. I think the best it got was 8mpg. Still, not being a trailer you could tow at what ever speed you want. Speed and momentum may be the plan to prevent from high-centering in that rig.
