The Ram Ecodiesel will not have a problem towing that TT I wouldn't think. They have good torque and the payload is s tad higher than on the 1500s so you should be fine. Certainly within the published tow rating and payload.
My 1500 was awesome at towing about anything I threw back there. The problem was I ran out of payload every time! I had the ram boxes and steps on the side, plus it was a Laramie so my payload was only about 1300 total pounds. Time I added the trailer tongue weight, two passengers and some gear, I was maxed.
Now I have 2800# of payload and can tow more weight too so all is good now!
Plus, who doesn't like a new truck!
