We are currently towing our 30Ft. Holiday Rambler with a 1997 GMC 1500 Sierra with 350 cubic inch, fuel injected V8. We have over 140,000 miles on it and have had no problems (except a fuel pump), even though we know we are towing more than suggested. We looked at a 2012 Ram 1500 ST with the same size engine as our 97, that is supposed to tow over 10,000 lbs. Anyone have any thoughts?

First, welcome to the forum. You did not say whether your RV was a TT or a 5W nor give the weight. If 5W then there is tongue weight on the bed to consider. Tow capability can depend on rear end gear ratio. You should compare those numbers. I have a friend with a 2013 1500 and he can only tow 9250 - as per the manufacture specs. Have you checked the owner's manual for the one you are considering?
