Can 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab Tow Fifth Wheel


Can a 2006 Dodge Ram Hemi mega cab tow a fifth wheel ?


Expert Reply:

Yes, a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 with a Mega Cab and a 6-1/2 foot bed does have fifth wheel rail kits made for it so it could easily tow a fift wheel hitch. From my research it looks like the towing capacity is 7,300 to 7,800 lbs so you'd need to confirm that though and stay under the capacity.

So since you have a truck bed shorter than 8 feet you'll need a slider hitch to get you the clearance needed. For that we have the Pro Series 16k Hitch part # PS30121 which is a slider hitch and would work well. For a rail kit then you'd want a custom install kit like the Reese part # RP50140-58 which is a confirmed fit for your truck. The advantage custom install kits have over universal ones is that they minimize install time and drilling.
