That's not enough information to tell you anything. For a travel trailer, you need to do 3 weights:

1) Truck + trailer with WDH engaged
2) Truck + trailer w/ just coupler on ball (throw the WDH bars into the truck bed)
3) Truck only

Here's an article on it:

And once you have the 3 weigh slips, here is a calculator you can use:

If you have a 1/2 ton pickup you are probably over your GVWR and RAWR.

Have you compared those numbers to those on the door of your truck and axle rating for the trailer? As was stated, really not a lot of info to go on.
