Question towing a 27' prowler 2702BS

Planning a vacation to Missouri with my 2005 Ram 1500 with 3:55 gears.
My salesman LIED and told me I had an 8600 pound tow capacity but after I bought the camper I found out I had the 3:55s and only rated for 7600 lbs because of that I only have a 13,000 lbs CGVW. My trailer is 6550 lbs dry and if I add Truck base of 5261 lbs plus 800 lbs people and the trailer I'm maxed. I have an Equal-izer hitch with sway control. I'm considering Firestone air bags. I drive heavy semi's every day so I'm used to going up mountains at 20-25 mph I don't have a problem with being patient.
I just bought the truck in Dec. I'm looking for a 2500 or 3500 cummins but I found rust spots on my doors today and am nervous about getting another Dodge.
Does anyone have any advise? How do I know a good brake controller from a bad one?
