The actual towing capacity depends on some of the options of your truck (cab, bed length, gear ratio etc.)
There is a tool on rams website to lookup towing capacities but I can't seem to find it from my phone.
A good investment might be a set of air bags in tr rear to help handle the weight a little bit better
Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the GVWR is the physical weight on the truck, not the OA weight of the trailer. In other words, the weight of the truck and content, plus the weight of the trailer tongue, or hitch.
