The capacity of your tow vehicle should be a major part of your decision. It is very easy to overload a stock half-ton when pulling a comp trailer. Lots of folks ignore the GVWR and will tell you you can pull heavy with a 1500, but don't believe it. You can get away with an overload in good conditions on flat land, but take it into the mountains or encounter bad weather and things can go wrong fast, sometimes fatally.
If you intend to tow wiht your current Ram I suggest investing in a quality hitch and suspension upgrades.
Sam is right about checking out lots of different rigs before you buy - we're on our fourth and still tinkering with it. Cooking style, cookers, makeup of your team, health concerns, etc. etc. all make for a unique set of needs for everybody. No matter which way you go you will be compromising something.
