Default Your opinion on towing...

Hi everybody, a newbie with a questions that might have been beaten to death...

I own a 2010 RAM 1500 TRX 4x4 with Hemi engine (5.7 l) with the towing package option. The truck towing capacity is 9950 pounds per Chrysler. I am planning to buy a Work and Play travel trailer which weighs 7500 pounds. Motorycles, passengers and miscelleneous stuff are estimated to 1500 pounds for a total of 9000. This gives me a 1000 pounds leaway only.

Am I trying to tow too much? I know my truck can handle it but am I pulling the elastic too much? I still want to have fun while towing my trailer and not feel that it's the trailer that is in control...

Thanks for your advice
