Not much information there. 1/2 ton trucks can be rated to tow between 5000 lbs. to over 10,000 lbs, depending on year, make, model, engine, final drive ratio, and cab/bed configuration.
How about all of that info ??
In addition, as others have stated, you need to load up the family and expected camping gear, and get your truck weighed. That will give you the actual tongue weight that your truck can handle without exceeding the GVWR.
I pull a SV 263......the sister ship to the SV 264. Even though my camper weighs in around 5500 lbs. ready to camp and my 1/2 truck is rated to pull 9300 lbs., and am within 200 lbs. of my GVWR......and that is with just 2 people and a dog in the cab, with some camping gear in the bed.
