Welcome to JOF!
Not everybody has the same loading habits, tow expectations, and/or towing environment (flats, hills, mountains, etc.)......, so be mindful of this when looking at that advertisement.
Also, the passenger weight and cargo that you take in your existing Dodge Ram isn't going to change and will be subtracted from a smaller payload capacity (Dodge Caravan, etc.)........, plus subtracting the 24 FB's loaded tongue weight (based on your loading style).
The smaller the vehicle you go from the Dodge Ram, the higher the tendency of approaching (or exceeding) that particular vehicle's limitations.
