To find the towing capacity of your truck you need to find out the curb weight (on VIN sticker) of your truck.
Add the weight of passengers, fuel, and cargo to the curb weight. Then you'll subtract this number from your vehicle's GCWR (you may have to look this up using your VIN if it's not on the door sticker). This number is your max towing capacity.

For your 2015 Ram 2500 Bighorn I recommend the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3270 with the B&W Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # BWRVK2602. It has an 18,000 GTW rating to safely tow your 1999 Jayco Eagle and the slider has 12" of travel to help prevent the nose of your camper from coming into contact with the cab of your truck. The 3/4" Thick dual jaws provide 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact for less rattle and more security than slide-bar jaws. The custom brackets of this base rail will require no drilling to install which will drastically cut down on installation time.
