There are two factors you need to consider when towing a 5th wheel trailer with a 2019 Ram 1500; weight and clearance. In regards to overall towing capacity, this can be as high as 11,470 lbs. depending on options so the loaded trailer must not exceed this. In regards to clearance, this will vary by bed size. If you have a 5' 7" bed then you will need to use a rotating pin box in order to make full 90 degree turns but if you have a 6' 4" bed then you can use a sliding 5th wheel hitch in order to make full 90 degree turns. I have attached options for this below.

5' 7" Bed:
Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Single Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30928
Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - part # C16307-204
Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin - part # RP61422 (Please Confirm Pin Box Model Number)
Sidewinder Wedge # RP44FR
Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness - part # C56070

6' 4" Bed:
Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - part # C16521
Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - part # C16307-204
Curt 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness - part # C56070
