Default My 5.2 is a dog when towing.....???

I just purchased a new travel trailer that weighs in at 6300# empty. I did not think this was going to be a problem for my truck but.....my 2001 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 4x4 with the 5.2 automatic struggled to get this trailer down the highway. Pedal to the floor to keep my speed up. 50MPH was about it on level road and bogged way down going up the hills. My other Dodge was a 5.2 auto and I pulled a travel trailer that weighed more than this one and never had any issues. What is the deal? I just bought this truck so maybe I have a problem that I need to be looking for? Any ideas on what to do? The truck seems to run just fine without the trailer.
