Well, we got our trailer out for the first time over the weekend and my truck (04 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi) seemed to pull it just fine. Ive got a nice Curt brand load leveling type hitch with the sway control, and I have a brake controller in the truck for the trailer brakes.

Overall it pulled it really well..but when you start getting up over 65mph you can really tell that you are pulling something that has the aerodynamics of a brick wall. Its no diesel, but the 350hp Hemi in the truck seemed to hold its own as long as you dont mind spinning up the RPMs when you need more power.

I have a 3-inch Flowmaster aftermarket exhaust on the truck which I never really thought was too loud in the past.but after towing that trailer for 2hrs, Im starting to think that a quieter exhaust might be something that I need to look into. I think if I had to hear that exhaust during a 10+ hour road trip, it would drive me nuts. If the road is nice and flat its pretty quiet and no big deal, but when you are climbing hills and trying to maintain 60+mph and the motor is running 4000+rpms.it gets annoying in a hurry.
