Well cargo capacity from a 2500 sb will be far different to a 3500 lb dually 4x4 and everything in between.
You want the long story, get the weight of the 5er you think your going to buy...wet weight or loaded what ever you want to call it.
weight of the truck including fuel, occupants and anything else you might add, tool box, winch, hd bumper, etc.
add the 2 weights together and see if your truck is rated to haul/carry/tow that specific weight.
Plan for adding extra's to either your truck or the 5'er so your not maxing out the weight.
Then factor in # of days your going to be camping/pulling your 5'er and if the truck is also going to be a daily driver. What can you afford / like etc.
In the long run your the only one who knows you and what your going to be happy with.
