redram5.9 : Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Do you have a short bed? Just trying to see if you will need a sliding hitch.

Yes short bed


I'm worried that I don't have enough engine with 4.6L. What do you think?


The trailer is a 29ft Terry built 5th wheel


I'm online Bernard


What do you think about my engine power

redram5.9 : I think you should invest in a pull type trailer instead. I am worried about your payload capacity. 5th wheel trailers have 2x the weight on the nose than the pull type trailer. Your 1500 is simply not beefy enough to handle that kind of set up.

How much load can I pull

redram5.9 : Engine power may be able to pull it, but suspension, brakes are the issue. I would say under 6000 pounds dry.

How much can I pull with my 07 Ram 1500 4x4 V8 4.6L Truck


Because there a 33ft pull type trailer that I like but a friend said its to much for my truck?

redram5.9 : About 7000

max load

redram5.9 : Specs state between 7500 max. I would stick around 7000.

Cool thanks. Its best to stay away from a 5ft wheel for my dodge..... right?

redram5.9 : Yes. This would be the only 5th wheel I would consider. There are better pull type options though.
redram5.9 :

right on
