Just wondering if anyone is towing a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 behind a 2002 Fleetwood Discovery 37T. Trying to find out if this can be down before I spend the money to get the tow bar and brake set up on my truck. I have contacted Freightliner they referred me to Fleetwood. I can not find a contact number for Fleetwood.

Thanks

The truck can be towed 4 down because it's a 4x4. Question is can your rig pull that much weight?

I pull my 2010 Ram 1500 4x4 behind my Bounder diesel regularly. The Bounder weighs in at 21,000 lbs and has a GVWR of just under 30,000 lbs. The next issue with the bounder is the 5,000 lbs receiver hitch. I think you have similar numbers on the Discovery.

There will be directions in your Dodge owners manual for putting the transfer case in neutral for the purpose of towing.

X2 on checking your hitch capacity.
