I tow a 7200 lbs 5er with my 1500 and a pullrite superglide 12k hitch. The weight you need to add up is hitch weight, any passengers, or drive over 150 lbs. Place your luggage in the trailer midway so you still good on trcuk gross weight. The total weight will not be over "GVCWR" this is truck and trailer loaded combined. The 1500 is rated to haul not confused with tow but haul 1500 lbs including a 150 driver depending on gears. I tow from CT to FL up and down 81 all those hills and the truck tows like a dream, and power to pull a ford and its load up the hill too!!! lol had to say it.
