Tow weight on my truck

Sorry if this has been talked about, I can't find it. I have a 2004 Ram 3500 cummins quad cab long bed automatic with 4.10 gears. How heavy can I legally tow? (I know it's about braking and safety)

I have a Hemisphere 368 RLBH.

I live in PA, I called Penndot, they can't tell me anything helpful.

So according to the chart I'm good to 23k, which means I have to jump to a class 8 in PA. It's crazy to jump that high for camping from spring to beginning of winter.

Try this site. My wife and I attended a RV show in Atlanta yesterday. This was one of the seminars presented and it was very good. Hopefully this will provide you with an answer.
