I'd stay under 4,000, there are lots of nice trailers out there under that weight. How many people do you need to sleep?
There are lots of nice ultra lights out there. Keep in mind the slide outs will add weight. Go to the dealerships, look at the weight on the inside trailer doors.
Don't let them talk you into something more/too much than you need. I'd rather have 2000 lbs to "play" with, that be worrying about how much everything you put in the trailer weighs.

I have a Frontier crew cab 4X4 for a company work truck, trust me you DO NOT want to be pulling a 6000lb trailer with it! I tow a 4500lb enclosed trailer with it every once in a while and truthfully the Frontier really struggles on hills, its fine on flats, but hills kill it. I would try and stick with a trailer in the 5000lb range at most, you can find some very nice campers in that size now days.
