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?

Thanks for the replies and the informative information. The dealership called and said that truck can only tow 8700 lbs. so we are no longer considering it. We are seriously looking at a Silverado 2500 HD that we are sure will be adequate.

A 2500HD should be enough to tow that camper, not sure if you are buying new or used. If buying new, get the extra optional towing equipment. extended slide out mirrors, intergrated brake controller, heavy duty cooling, they may seem expensive on paper, but they far worth the price, especialy on resale of the vehicle.
