This is just a guess

Quad cab, Hemi engine, 3.92 axle ratio, Class 4 hitch receiver
weight of 3 adults, bed loaded
you should be able to pull a loaded trailer weighing 7,000 pounds

i would load the Ram with what you plan on having in it while pulling a trailer, go to a PUBLIC SCALES, Mayflower & other moving companies usually have a set of scales, walk up to the scale house, there will be a Weigh Master inside. Tell them what you want to do & let him know that do NOT need a Certificate, he will likely tell you to pull on the scale & he will orally give you your weight, most times they won't charge you because he didn't need to do any paper work.
Using that weight, lets you know what weight trailer that you can pull

anything over 5,000 pounds should also have a weight distribution system
