Video Transcript for Stromberg Carlson Tailgate Installation - 2011 Dodge Ram 1500

Today, on our 2011 Dodge Ram 1500, we are going to install part number VG-10-100. This is a Stromberg-Carlson fifth wheel tailgate. To start of our install, we need to go ahead and remove the existing tailgate. The tailgate comes with bushings we will install on the tailgate on the driver side on that pin and then on the passenger side, the bushing will install over here. We will go ahead and start installing our tailgate, we will slide it onto the bushing on the driver side. Keeping the tailgate tilted, we will go ahead and install it on the passenger side.

Then, we can go ahead and push it up into place and do a test. Now, the latches were preinstalled so all we have to do is adjust them to make sure they work right. With that, it will finish it for part number VG-10-100 on our 2011 Dodge Ram 1500. .

Love my 5th wheel Carlson Tailgate. It’s so easy to unhitch , open & close. I love the way it looks too. Absolutely no problems .


This gate is a great replacement for the original gate which I have in storage. I do quite a bit of trailering and like the convenience and better visibility. I am searching for aa backup camera that would plug into wiring harness. Do not want to disassemble original gate to get the camera.

The gate is as I expected and have I have recommended to friends who like the look and convenience when pulling gooseneck trailers.

I brought this tailgate and I have no regrets after a year. It still looks the same as day one assembled easily in minutes.

2014DodgeRam Pickup

This is the second Stromberg Carlson tailgate we have had, and we are very pleased with the fit, finish and simplicity of the design. ( Pic 1)

The design lined up with body lines of our 2014 Ram 3500 as good as could be expected. (pic 2)

One thing about this tailgate that I experienced with our first one, is that it rattles when you hit bumps and sings the song of its people on gravel or washboard roads...people will hear your tailgate coming probably long before they hear the rest of your truck. The latch does come with a rubber bumper, but that only helps quiet the rattle a little bit. The main source of the rattle is where the latch rides on the tailgate striker, it is a nice touch being able to use the OEM striker by the way. (pic 4)

I put a piece of hose over the OEM striker for the latch to ride on (pic 5). I am sure the hose will wear down over time but that is an easy fix. The tailgate now latches very firmly and only a little rattle from the lower hinge area, but nothing like it was.

Another nice touch was the cable attachment, we were able to use all the original Ram hardware, you will need to supply two M8 nuts and two washers, but it is otherwise plug and play. A major improvement from our previous Stromberg tailgate.

I highly recommend this tailgate, the last one was as good as the day we bought it after 12 years when we sold it (if it had fit the RAM we would still have it!). The fact that this tailgate is inexpensive is an added bonus. Installation time was about half an hour.

Our experience with etrailer was stellar and George took great care to communicate with us over the progress of our purchase...there is a reason why we are return customers!

2018 Ram 2500

Great Product! Easy ordering, received order in 3 days. I had it installed in 15 min. and it fits perfect. Etrailer will be my first choice when looking for trailer supplies.

2016 Ram 2500

Geat Product shipped fast great packaging took 10 minutes to install fits great looks great . To install look at the video on etrailer tell you evetything even how to take your other tailgate off. Would defently order from etrailer again

Patton - 08/22/2019


It's to hard to open and close the tail gate.

2014DodgeRam Pickup

It was delivered in a timely matter and easy to install. As far as the back up camera, I transferred it to the bumper next to the tag plate.
I also picked up around 2 mpg towing my 13000 lbs 5th wheel camper. And around 3 mpg without towing anything. I would recommend it.


It fit perfectly. Well pleased

2016 Ram 3500

Heavy duty, easy to install,great value, looks awesome! My original factory tailgate had a big dent on the top of it and it made my $65,000 truck look like a jalopy, after I replaced the tailgate with a Stromberg Carlson 100 5th Wheel Tailgate it not only improved the value of my truck but it now looks even better than before.


Really fast shipping, really excellent product, and the installation video was great and most helpful. Thank you for great service.

Pontiac Trans Sport Van

Tailgate was perfect fit and finish. So easy to install, (15 minutes after delivery). Really great experience considering I was in a trailer park when I needed this. I left original tailgate at home in order to transport my motorcycle to southwest. Now I can load up other paraphonalia for return trip home.


Great price. I’ve had it a year now, use it frequently as I switch out tailgates depending on what trailer I’m pulling. This one is easy to remove and install, also light weight enough to handle easily.
I would definitely recommend it and purchase it again if need be.

Still like new. My tween can install it when we switch out for the gooseneck trailer. Easy and light enough to pop up in there solo.
Vicki - 07/09/2021


The tailgate was easy to put on and worked well, but it was stolen a month later. We bought another one from you with a lock and after a few months was also stolen off the truck. Need to find some way to secure the tailgate so it cannot be stolen. Have spent about 700 dollars on fifth wheel tailgates.


Not much to say it was just what I needed and was every thing I expected.
Would buy another one if i need that type gate.


Great delivery and superb product. Very easy install.

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

First off let's get real, this is NOT a heavy duty, put 300 pounds on it tailgate. It is also not $400 plus dollars. It is well made, it fit my 2015 Dodge 3500 (non-dually) like the factory made it. The latches, with adjustments provided a good tight closure, read no rattle. The parts were well secured to the gate when I opened the box and all parts fit perfectly. The existing cables for supporting the gate fit perfectly. I spent more time removing the OEM tailgate than I did putting on the new one. It looks good, fits good and did not require a loan to purchase. Etrailer shipping was phenomenal, lighting fast. If there is a complaint it is the instructions, they totally suck, especially if you have no previous experience in this area. However, even if you have zero experience, do NOT shy away from this tailgate, take your time, take the old one off and "look" at the fittings, if you have enough of a brain to remove the old tailgate you can figure this out. Total installation time 30 minutes, if the OEM would not have been brand new and "painted on" installation would have been about 15 minutes. It is exactly what I wanted for the price I wanted it at. Good job Etrailer! Fact is, I have ordered other parts from you since this one!

After a year the gates looks like new, still working perfectly and still does rattle. Excellent product for the price.

2013 Ram 1500

When I arrive from work and saw a box by front door open box then do assembly then installed wow very easy and simple to do it look great on my truck


Awesome product
Shipped same day, had
it in 2 days
I couldn’t be happier
Received great help from Ana;)

2017 Ram 2500

Received 5th wheel tailgate on Friday was supposed to come on Monday, so received early. Service with Etrailer is great. The tailgate looks fantastic (not able to send picture). Was really east to install. Only problem was when I opened it one of the tubes that go across the gate had lost its weld on one end. (that is why only 4 stars.) Foam padding in box may have prevented this. I was able to spot weld it my self. Other than that I am very happy with it.

Still very pleased with my 5th wheel tail gate. Works beautifully.

2010 DodgeRam Pickup

Installed on a 2010 dodge ram 2500 fits great easy install watched the video took 5 mins to install very happy with this product.

2016 Ram 2500

Beautiful tailgate. So easy to install. I'm happy I found you. Well built.


Great tailgate, easy to install


Very good, I've been driving on rough roads and mountain trails and beaches, the tail gate still is tight (no rattles). It is perfect for easy coupling/uncoupling my 40 foot 5th wheel RV without getting out of the cab to raise/lower the tailgate.

I have 15000 miles pulling my 40 foot 5th wheel RV, the Carlson RV tailgate stays closed all the time when coupling uncoupling the 5th wheel It doesnt rattle, just as tight as when I first put it on. Great product, keep up the good products, Ive purchased other products from etrailer, all have been great. Thank You,, Ron M.

DodgeRam Pickup

I really like this tailgate. I had one that I used for years on my ford truck and it gave me great service. Recently I purchased a new dodge RAM truck and the old tailgate would not fit so I ordered a new one. It fit perfectly. It is much easier to hitch and unhitch my 5th wheel.

After a year I am still very satisfied with the tailgate. In fact we are on a trip right now.
