Yes. But my truck also had about 500lbs of cargo/passengers in the cab. And I realize comparing a 2500 to a 1500 in that scenario is mute.I think your 3200# on a nearly 3000# payload is no real issue as work-type trucks are routinely overloaded when used “as trucks”.
I completely agree the length of the trailer as compared to the TV is something that makes more difference than overloading by 200lbs.
In thia case my set up is also conservative. The truck is about 22 foot and our travel trailer is 24 foot. I have no stress heading to the campground.
I wish I had asked to take a pic of the one guy I saw 5th wheel towing with 2019 Ram.
He had a 2wd crew cab 6'4 bed tradesman. And that setup looked much better than the f250 beside him hauling a 5th wheel a 3500 dually would cringe at.
It really comes down to the whole picture. Length of trip, topography, experience, good quality hitches, an honest approach to what we want with regard to what we can safely tow.
It is getting better here as people have started to understand GVWR GAWR GCWR and that max towing is not attainable with a RAM limited
