    I'm not really familiar with your application, but I'd go back with something like the factory offering. I think the factory hitch on my '01 Dodge Ram 2500 is a class 4. If it were me, I'd go for the overkill class 5. Just to throw this out there, I do my towing either with the factory installed hitch on my truck, or with my B&W turn-over-ball gooseneck hitch which is rated for several times more than my truck can handle.
