I have a 2010 ram 1500. Just bought a 6x10 CAM Dump in the spring. Trailer is rated for 10k. For mulch, and brush its awesome, truck pulls it no problem. What you have to watch is the tounge weight. Sure, my truck will tow 10k, trailer will hold 10k, but the bumper will be on the ground. In order for my trucl to tow 10k, it has to be balanced on the trailer, and a trailer full or gravel is not balanced.
