Lessons in Towing from the RamZone Archives

2013 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty

Ram Trucks drivers know that towing is about more than just power—towing is an art form. To safely deliver a heavy load, to properly back a trailer into a tight spot, to keep a trailer going straight down a highway—these are skills that require practice and an understanding of your truck’s capabilities.

For Ram Trucks drivers who are avid boaters, snowmobilers and campers, our Towing Tips blog post offers pointers and safety tips for keeping you moving down the road safely—tips such as checking the tire pressure of your trailer, maintaining control during heavy winds and reversing a trailer to back up a boat, for example. It’s a must-read for anyone planning on hauling their prized toys to their favorite weekend and vacation destination.

For drivers interested in the technical side of towing, return to RamZone’s Know Your Tow post to learn the language of the trailer hitch—from Gross Combined Vehicle Weight (GCVW) and Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) to Trailer Tongue Weight and Locking Differential. The better you know your truck the more capable you’ll be of maximizing its potential. And, at the very least, you’ll be able to hold court during a conversation on the power and capability of your truck.

For a complete guide, towing specs, and common weight estimates on trailers, boats, cars, RVs, construction equipment, upfits and building materials, visit ramtrucks.com/towing_guide. No matter how far you go or how heavy your load, Ram Trucks has you covered. Hook your hitch up.

    Thanks so much for the post. I will definitely be keeping this in mind for when I go help my brother tow his car. Wish us luck, I think we might need it.
