My experience in towing with a half ton you should be fine with that set up. There are more then a few people towing that load and much heavier

Nice! That's a pretty impressive payload from a 1500 Ram. I know some past years were REALLY low. Thinking you got in on the good side of a redesign. I think you should be fine if you watch your weights and get a good hitch setup.

I was just going to say that is a low payload for a 150/1500 series truck. If I was going to buy a new 150/1500 series Ford or GM I think it is easy to find one with 1,900 to 2,100lb payload.

Just an opinion, but I was towing a 7200 lb TT all over the Midwest with a short wheel base Tahoe. I didn't know any better...And of course the dealer said I'd be fine.

When I upgraded my trailer I also upgraded to a F350. Been in a few hairy situations (herd of deer on I70 being the most recent) with the new rig, probably would have ended in a disaster with the old.

You will probably be fine towing with that setup 98% of the time. You'll going to be right at payload capacity if you can keep it under. Question is do you want to upgrade your TV or downsize your trailer for the one time you might be in a sticky situation where you have to panic stop or maneuver.

I'm a HD owner so I don't really worry too much about the 1500s other than hanging out on a Ram forum where there is a lot of discussion. Up until a couple years ago it seems like you couldn't find a Ram with more than 1500# payload. Thankfully, they made some changes. Like I referenced in a previous post, a buddy had a decked out 1500 with 1070# payload. Absolutely pitiful for something that is supposed to be a truck. Ironically, on the same camping trip I broke the bad news of carrying ability to that buddy, while trying to educate him, we referenced a sticker on a Subaru Forester that had a 960# payload!!
