Expert Reply:

If you were to use an extension such as # C45048 with Curt trailer hitch # C15809 on your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 then it would be limited to 4,500 pounds at the 34 inch length. But at the 24 inch length it is rated for 6,000 pounds and a standard length ball mount would provide additional extension to clear the in-bed camper.
