Expert Reply:

According to the research I did, your max trailer weight you can tow with your 2012 Ram 1500 is 8,150 lbs and the max weight you can tow in the bed of your truck is 1,146 lbs. I would strongly recommend you do your own research though by either contacting a Ram dealer or look further in your owner's manual.

Based on the dry weights of the trailer you are interested in this trailer would be too heavy. You would either need to find a lighter trailer or upgrade your truck.
