No issues whatsoever. I've used my slide hitch to twice, but the times were for familiarization vs. really needing it. Pulled through the mountains in PA and TN with no problems.

Ram 2500 and Eagle 323LKTS. Overall length of the trailer is just over 37'. No idea what my weights are as I haven't been to a scale, but based on my yellow sticker and loading habits, I'm guessing we're around 11,500 lbs.

Towed like a dream. A special pat on the back to the Ford. Up and down the rockies and the truck ran like a charm at altitude! I have a slider, but only use it backing in my own driveway!
Great feedback,thanks

I pull a 2015 Pinnacle 36FBTS with a 2016 Ram SRW it's a long bed.
I pull it up and down I-81 and very happy with the way it pulls.

Rams are beast for sure. I had an 07 sb when the new 6.7 came out and it wouldn't get out of its own way with a 29' lite weight fifthwheel when ay highway speeds and needing to pass some one. I bought it new,had it 3 months and was in shop 5 times. New turbo...etc... turns out it was all due to the new emission system that was required and it was first year dodge had used it. If you remember that same year fords were catching on fire due to the emissions.Dodge bought my truck back and I ended up with a 1500 that I kept for 5 years,best truck I ever owned. Dodge has since fixed all that emissions crap and in my opinion is the toughest truck on the road even though I drive an F250. That being said, all of the big 3 Chevy,Dodge,and Ford definitely build capable diesels (I've owned a new one of each) and power wise will tow waaaaayyyyyy more than they're rated for.

Have you towed it through any mountains? Experienced any steep grades or side winds?
