The 5 Best Trucks For Towing Trailers

The 5 best trucks to haul your toys, project cars and work trailers. These are the top Air Lift air suspension support kits and the trucks they fit.

What are the best trucks for towing.

Air Lift Company developed a list of the best-midsized trucks for towing and hauling trailers, campers and other toys.

While a truck might have the towing capacity you’re looking for, once you have your trailer behind it, you might experience some trailer sway or vehicle squat, even with the most equipped truck. That’s where Air Lift’s air support kits can help make the ride more comfortable for passengers and safer.

1. Ram 1500

Depending on the year and engine of your Ram 1500, the towing capacity can vary from 4,000 to 12,750 lbs. The Ram 1500 can tow a large travel trailer, flatbed or small horse trailer. The Ram 1500 will also be able to handle towing these recreational things:

  • Pop Up Campers
  • Fishing Boats
  • Vehicle Tow Dolly
  • ATVs
  • Jet Skis
  • Snowmobile / Snow machines

More recent models with specific engines can tow over 12,000 lbs. when properly equipped, meaning the Ram 1500 can handle towing and hauling just about anything. The 2022 Ram 1500 also offers towing features like a 360-surround view camera and trailer hitch light.

Air Lift Company has air suspension helper kits for the 2009-2022 Ram 1500 two-wheel and four-wheel drive. There is a kit that fits the new body style, 2019-2022 Ram 1500, two-wheel drive, and the new body style for the 2019-2023 Ram 1500, four-wheel drive.
