5th Wheel Towing Capacity

The 5th wheel towing capacity is not directly provided by Dodge, but it’s often considered higher than conventional towing due to the design of the hitch system, which distributes weight more efficiently across the vehicle’s axles.

This setup can offer a smoother and more stable towing experience. Given the maximum conventional towing capacity and the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) for each engine variant, one can infer that the 5th wheel towing capacity could range from slightly above 11,000 lbs for the 5.7L Hemi V8 to potentially upwards of 16,400 lbs for the 5.9L Cummins Turbo Diesel and 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engines.

Gooseneck Towing Capacity

Similar to the 5th wheel setup, the gooseneck towing configuration also boasts an impressive towing capacity due to its hitch design.

It’s often utilized for heavier loads and is most effective in towing large trailers and livestock carriers. While the precise figures are not officially provided, the gooseneck towing capacity for the 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 is likely on par with or even exceeds the 5th wheel capacities, given the same engine configurations and GCWR.

However, it’s crucial to remember that these are estimated figures.

For precise towing capacities, including 5th wheel and gooseneck towing, owners should consult their vehicle manual or Dodge directly to avoid overloading and ensure safe towing practices.

Furthermore, it’s always crucial to consider the actual loaded weight of your trailer, not just the empty weight, as adding cargo, passengers, and fuel will affect the overall towing capacity.
