The Curt E16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # C16115 is large enough to tow a 11,200 lbs trailer regardless of the length. For your 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 long bed I recommend the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Dodge Ram - Carbide Finish # C16420-204 which will fit your truck frame without any drilling. Your other option is to use the Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit - Carbide Black Finish # C16200 which will require drilling and a lot more measuring.

You may also want to consider adding the Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness w/ 7-Pole Connector - 10' Long # C56001 to give you the 7-way connection in the bed of your truck for a clean look as well as easy access.
