A new concept from Dodge.
They don't get much bigger, have more range or more pulling power than the Ram Long-Hauler Concept truck.
On display at selected events across the country, the Ram Long-Hauler is based on a Class 5 Ram 5500 Chassis Cab, and is designed to suit the needs of anyone that tows multiple or heavy trailers, drives long distances or small business owners looking for a "work horse" at the job site.
Designers started with a Class 5 Ram 5500 Crew Cab and converted to a Mega Cab passenger compartment, added an 8-foot box and upped the range between refueling stops with a mid-ship fuel tank. Combined with a second frame-mounted tank and a third, optional, bed-mounted auxiliary tank, total fuel capacity is 170 gallons.
With a 197.4 - inch wheelbase and 37,500 Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR), the concept Long-Hauler from Ram is just the truck for those wanting to step up from a traditional Class 3 (one-ton) or Class 4 truck. Overall length of the Ram Long-Hauler is 24 feet, height is 79.1 inches and estimated curb weight is 9,300 lbs.
The powertrain for the concept truck includes an inline six-cylinder 6.7-liter High Output Cummins turbo Diesel engine rated at 800 lb.-ft. of torque. The Ram's legendary diesel engine is mated to a six-speed, Aisin AS68RC automatic transmission with four-wheel-drive transfer case coupled to a 4.88 Dana 110 axle with dual rear wheels.
Riding on a full Kelderman Air Suspension front and rear and 19.5-inch Alcoa aluminum wheels, on-road driving dynamics are civilized and even the toughest road surfaces are easily absorbed providing the driver and passengers with a smooth, comfortable ride. In fact Ram Long-Hauler's ride qualities are more inline with those of a 3/4-ton truck. The suspension package also is self-leveling with kneel feature.
On the exterior, brilliant black paint is accented by white gold metallic lower two-tone including body side moldings and wide wheel flares at the front and rear. Up front, a bull bar extends the entire width of the vehicle. For full use of the bed, the spare tire is located under the box. To help make trailer line-up easier on the fifth wheel, a separate back-up camera provides a full view of the bed.
A custom hitch-access tailgate allows easy hook-ups without the need to open or remove the entire tailgate.
Inside, interior noise levels have been heavily dampened with an upgraded NVH package that ensures a quiet cabin environment. The Ram Long-Hauler Concept includes 2+2 leather seating with a specific, high comfort driver seat. Rear passenger comfort is assured with power-adjustable footrests and a rear center console that includes a refrigerator, cup holders and tray tables.
In-cabin power includes 115V and 12V outlets front and rear. With the interior Wi-Fi enabled, passengers can easily work on laptop computers connected to the Internet during long drives.
Additional cabin features also include a laptop storage area and a safe for valuables. Interior items designed to keep the driver monitoring of vehicle performance will include a tire pressure monitoring system, rear axle temperature gauge and Exhaust gas temperature and Boost gauges. Convenience features also include an inductive charger and DVD player with overhead screen for rear seat passengers to enjoy their favorite programs and entertainment.
The rear seats and console also fold flat for additional storage or as a berth for resting.
Ram Truck has identified a potential market for a Class 5 pickup, including race car teams, car haulers, RV owners, ranchers and rodeo competitors, boaters and commercial expediting operations.
The Ram Long-Hauler, while only a concept, will be seen across the country in the next eight months to help gauge public opinion on the appeal of a vehicle that provides an upgrade from a 1-ton truck without moving up to a full Class 6 truck.

Fifth Wheel-to-Gooseneck Trailer Coupler Review - etrailer.com
Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer
installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today we are going to install part number CABC5G12 from Convert-A-Ball. We
are going to install this on our fifth wheel trailer we have here. This
will act as an adapter between the fifth wheel pin box. The gooseneck hitch
gets located in the bed of the truck. This is the collar that gets
installed on the fifth wheel itself. You can see there are these three
little set screws and these fit into the groove of the king pin itself. To
install this what you have to do is take the set screws and back them out
all the way. This requires the 3/ 8 hex bit too to do this. Before we
install this there is some stamping on the collar that tells you which is
the top side that faces towards the front of the trailer. 00:36
Orient that the correct way then we will tighten down our bolts. We have
got this going towards the front of the trailer and on top and we will just
get our set screws started. You want to tighten these down all evenly. When
you have all of these tightened down they should all be sunk in about
equal. If you get a thread or two hanging out you probably want to start
over and try again. The next thing we need to do is take out these set
screws here and back them out all the way also. What these screws do is
they clamp on to the collar we just installed. When we install our adapter
there is a sticker that tells you which way goes towards the front of the
trailer itself. Obviously it says front. Then that will also help orient
the screws. When we install this it is a good idea to have an extra set of
hands to help hold it up in the air. It gets kind of heavy pretty fast.
Once you have it loosely installed check it and make sure it is square the
way you want it. Once you have it the way you want it push it all the way
up and then tighten down the cap bolts. Once you have it the way you want
it and tightened down, torque down the bolts as specified in the
instructions. Now we will take these jam nuts and tighten them down to lock
everything in place. Before we hook up we will show you the quick operation
of it. Basically we have it in an open position. To move it to the lock
position push up on the lever and go forward and it springs back down into
place. When we hook up we will need that in the open position. Lets get our
safety chains so they do not drag then we will back it underneath the
trailer. Lets lower our trailer on to the ball and make sure the latch is
open. We will lock it and take our safety chains and connect to our safety
chain loops on the hitch. As you can see as we are driving around doing
some S turns you can see how it rotates with the trailer and it also takes
out a little bit of the shock when you hit some of the smaller bumps and
probably some of the bigger bumps too. So far our test drive is working
just fine. I think that will finish our install of part number CABC5G12
from Convert-A-Ball cushioned fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter.
