How to Transport Canoe While Towing 5th Wheel Trailer with 2019 Ram 2500


Hello. I am looking for some guidance. I have a 2019 Ram 2500 and tow a 5th wheel trailer. On our trips we'd like to also bring our canoe. Can you tell me what the best setup would be to allow this? Thanks so much for your help.

Since most of the bed on your 2019 Ram 2500 will be off limits when towing a 5th wheel trailer, the best solution for also transporting your canoe will be with a front mount hitch and roof rack setup.

Starting with the front hitch, I highly recommend the Curt # C31089 that offers plenty of vertical load capacity and also won't reduce the ground clearance on the truck. I have attached the written installation instructions that you can check out as well.

Then with the front hitch installed, you will need to add a T-load support bar and a roof rack setup to support the canoe. For this I recommend the Rhino-Rack T-Load # RTL002 and the Single Bar Aero Roof Rack parts # RRVA150B, # RRRLKVAH, # RTL002, and # DK043H. This will provide the needed support and stability for the canoe, while still leaving the bed and rear free for the 5th wheel overhang.

I have attached a couple customer-submitted images below that show a similar setup just so you can get a better idea of how it all comes together.
