According to my research, a 2010 Ram 2500 with the 6.7L turbo diesel engine has a maximum towing capacity of 13,350 lbs if you have the manual transmission or 13,450 lbs if you have the automatic transmission when properly equipped. Therefore, I cannot recommend you use this truck to tow a 15,000 lb trailer.

If you are able to find a trailer that is within your vehicle's towing capacity then you will need an installation kit and 5th wheel hitch in order to tow it. For this, I recommend using the Custom Underbed Installation Kit part # BWGNRK1313-5W with the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3400-5W if you have a 6-1/2' bed or the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # BWRVK3500-5W if you have an 8' bed.

The reason I recommend using the Custom Underbed Installation Kit is because it is a custom fit which means its does not require any drilling into the frame and it doubles as a gooseneck hitch. The reason I recommend the B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch is because they have 1" thick dual locking jaws which will do an excellent job of reducing chucking and jarring. They are also both made in the U.S.A. and come with a lifetime warranty. The Mighty Cord 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Wiring Harness part # A10-7010 will also make coupling the trailer much easier.

I have attached review/install videos for you as well.
