Do any of you Ram 3500 owners have the Ram dually adapter kit for your truck camper? Is it necessary for 4th gen Rams or is it only a necessity for the 03 to 09 Rams? Torklift's website is very vague about it.

All depends on your setup. I have a 2003 and I don't use the kit. Maybe if you post your truck and camper info someone might have the same set up and tell you if they use it.

The anchor point locations vary on the campers which can lead to interference with the fender. Narrower campers are also an issue on a DRW. The offset kit is for those cases, but I have not seen a list of specific campers that have interference issues with DRW trucks.

I did not need it on my 2015 or 18.

I could run the rear tiedown pushed in so pin went through inside hole, or pulled out with pin through outside hole.
but I always used the outside hole to keep the fastguns further away from body if camper moved.

Plus I used to have pipe isolation on the rear tie downs so they did not hit my body when I went to remove them.

I had fender clearance issues with the Bigfoot on the 2018 RAM. I called Bigfoot about using eyebolts on the camper mounts. It was OK by them, so I used 1/2" machinery shouldered eyebolts to move the attachment point out. I also talked to Torklift. They told me to drill new holes for the truck attachment extensions 1" farther inboard so the extensions will stick farther out.
There was a lot of back and forth on this forum about it. Apparently Torklift watches this forum and I got an email asking if I wanted a relocation kit for free. Sure. So they sent me one. It took forever for me to install it. New grandkids and back issues. It was a relatively easy install. Drilling the holes in their steel was a bit tough. It moves the attachment points farther rearward. If you have a camper mounting point that is getting weak it will stiffen it up some by securing it to the other point on that side of the camper.
I would drill the truck extensions 1" back and see where you are.
Thanks for kit Torklift!

2 seconds on google brought whole list of results
I think THIS pdf. shows it the best.
The need probably will need to be determinate once you load the camper.
