americon is on a distinguished road

I have a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.7L Hemi. I'm looking at buying a 29ft pull behind trailer that weighs 6200lbs dry and 8100 GVWR and my truck is good for 8350. I only plan on packing 1000lbs of camping gear in the trailer. I will also have a 600lbs quad in the box of the truck, and the truck/trailer will be equipt with break controller and stablizer hitch. I plan on driving in the mountains from time to time.
Will my truck be able to handle the load? If not what kind of weight should I look at as far as a trailers dry weight?
oh and my payload rating for the truck is 1150lbs and the trailers hitch weight is 912lbs.
