Default towing 35' travel Trailer 7500lbs gvwr

Looking at buying a Keystone passport 3220BH. this is 35' overall and a dry weight of 6,040lbs. GVWR is 7500lbs. Tongue weight is 600lbs dry. Now if I go to the Dodge Towing website, It says I can only tow 5,050lbs. That seems kinda low. I have the hemi, factory towing package, 3.93 gears. quad cab 4wd.

I would be using an Equal-i-zer weight/sway hitch. it is long for a short bed truck.

The RV dealer tells me that this isn't a problem, but I'm not so sure I believe him. The wife isn't real comfortable after reading post after post of this is an ultra-lite travel trailer, but should have a 3/4 ton pulling it.
