Smile Another tow vehicle question

Hello All,

We are looking at a 2017 5.0TA. Our tv would be a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab. It is a Laramie with a 5'7" bed. 20"wheels and 55" from floor to top of bed rail.

Do any on the forum use this tv or have used it with an Anderson hitch or 5th wheel hitch?

I appreciate your comments.
Nancy

Hi: Redandnan... I just got a 2016 Laramie Eco diesel CC 5'7" bed and 20" wheels. We had to lift the pinbox up one set of holes for a perfectly flat tow. The hitch is as low as it can go and WOW what a TOW!!!

Thank you for your quick response, Alf! That is a fine looking set up you have there. Hopefully our Dodges can meet at a rally sometime.
