American market vehicles such as the RAM 1500 can offer increased towing limits, making them a popular choice in Australia for light duty applications such as agricultural, equipment haulage and full time grey nomad/5th wheel campers. A RAM 1500 tray and canopy package can transform the vehicles functionality and when equipped with a GVM upgrade and other aftermarket accessories, the 1500 provides a classy and comfortable tourer/workhorse.
The Ram 1500 tray to be marginally longer than the tub, coming in at 2115mm long (bed size of 2050mm x 2050mm). This strikes a balance between rear overhang and usable tray space, including allowing full size under tray toolboxes to be fitted along with front boxes as well. The headboard height is 900mm, meaning it will line up closely with a cabin mounted roof rack. The overall width of 2050mm means you have nearly 200mm more internal space than all of the Australian market dual cabs like the Hilux, Ranger, Triton etc.
