Towing with a 2011 Ram 3500 Dually info
I just helped a friend pick up a used horse trailer with living quarters. The truck was a 2011 Ram 3500 cab chassis crew cab with a hauler bed. In 2011 Ram Cab Chassis was ordered with 4:10 gears and 6 speed manual. The 4 horse trailer with 15' shortwall living quarters empty weighed 10,000 lbs.
Solo driving 65mph to 70mph the truck got 17.3 mpg. Towing the 10,000lb 35 foot horse trailer the MPG was 10.3. The truck had only 1,200 miles on it. Rolling down the highway was very pleasant.
The horse trailer can carry 5,000 lbs. of horses. Towing with weight shifting horses might be different.
