My hitch is rated at 16,000 pounds yet in 3 years of towing a 9200 pound camper it has gotten beaten up pretty good.
NOT unsafe, mind you, just showing its age. gauling on the slides and some bending of the front leading edge metal due to movement in the Super Rails.
I personally would never even consider going that close to the edge with my families life in the balance. That hitch and its mounts are the only thing keeping the camper connected to the truck.
In this case NEVER send a boy to do a man's job. I would not consider anything less than a PullRite has a SAFER, STRONGER, BETTER designed hitch for you
model 4100 (16,000 pounds) to pull a 12,000 pound camper.
