Should be fine. I have a 2012 silverado crew with the exact trailing options you have and am pulling a 30 tt around 8k and it pulls good. Could use more power on good inclines but It's does better than expected.

We also have a similar 1500 (5.3, 3.42 ratio, etc.). We have a 19' TT which dry is roughly 4,000 lbs. We've towed on a couple of occasions with no issue; the TV is new, recently traded our 1500 with the 4.8, so limited experience. Our plan is to load two motorcycles in the bed (KLR 650s) which combined would be roughly 800 lbs dry. All the numbers that I worked suggest that our new TV should be capable, and reviewing with local fellow TT enthusiasts support my math. The difference in our case being the MC in the TV over the rear axle.
