Cool Towing 5th Wheel for the first time

Hey all, I've got a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Laramie edition, and I've been asked by my wife to tow a friends 5th wheel trailer back home after my next hitch at work (I work in the Oilsands in Alberta). I'm curious, since I've never towed before (with my truck anyways) how I can find out how much I can actually tow with my truck....I'll be putting a 5th wheel hitch in the box of my truck, right now I only have a pintle hitch on my truck....

It better be a light weight trailer & you really have to watch your turns & how you back up
You better get the right hitch, i THINK that i read that it has to be a sliding type

It is suggested that Ram 1500s & 5th wheel trailers not be used together
