The towing capacity (gooseneck/fifth wheel/bumper pull) of a 2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Crew Cab will vary by axle ratio and drive type. If you have a 4x2 model then your towing capacity is 8,010 lbs if you have the 3.21 axle ratio or 10,190 lbs if you have the 3.92 axle ratio. If you have a 4x4 model then your towing capacity is 7,760 lbs if you have the 3.21 axle ratio or 9,810 lbs if you have the 3.92 axle ratio. The axle ratio should be listed on a sticker in the glove box or on the window sticker if you still have this.

For a gooseneck hitch, I recommend the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNRK1309 as this is the best option on the market because of the square hitch ball opening that practically eliminates the chance of the hitch ball getting stuck. The B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch is also a custom fit so no drilling into the truck frame is needed.
