Default Towing with a 2012 ram 1500

Hey all! I have a 12' ram 1500ST 4x4sb with the hemi and I am considering a new travel trailer. In the past I have had different half ton trucks and they have not been really good at pulling any weight. They get up to 40 or so easily after that they seem to be working really hard to go any faster. I am not sure what the gearing was. The real question is the trailer is going to be a 2013 Kodiak 242resl (28ft total hitch to tail) and 5000lbs empty and 460 tongue weight. My truck has the factory brake controller and I have a WDH hitch. I live in Nevada and there are some little hills here called the Sierra's so there is some climbing to do. My question is. Any problems with pulling this ?

Hemius Maximus is my pride and joy and I don't want to kill it so if any feel that is too much weight or I need to make adjustments I would appreciate a response.
