All depends on whether or not you bring the family. I save about 450-500 lbs off my CCC when the wife, kids, dogs, their car seats, snacks, entertainment and whatnot follow in her minivan instead of riding in the truck.
When I first bought my TT I bought one that was 5800 dry based on a max tow of 8200. After learning more about how loads, etc, affect towing capacity I've realized I'm overweight when I have those extra pounds in the truck. Not much I can do about it since I can't afford a new truck yet so we accommodate. Either by taking the 2 vehicles, or by taking it slow and easy and staying off the highways as much as possible, giving myself extra space, etc...
What I'm seeing so far is that that trailer is too much for that truck, because it's tongue heavy, but it you really want it, then it's up to you if you're willing to drive it that way.
