Is it a crew cab? Single cab, or extended cab? What trim package is it? Are there any aftermarket additions added that it did not come off assembly line with. All these factor in to giving you an answer. People need all the numbers to accurately tell you their opinion

The sticker only gives you payload.

Can you pull it yes, can you pull it safely is another question, I would say no, you are looking at a 14K pound trailer fully loaded, your CCC is already at its limits with the camper, hitch and occupants. It is also a really long camper, you may get the tail wagging the dog scenario, and it always about the get up and go, you need to stop the thing as well.

With the manufacturers info you provided, it looks like fully loaded your pin weight (counts against payload on the door sticker) could approach 2800 pounds. That leaves you very little left (350#) for passengers and cargo in the truck itself.

You can pull it, but you are a textbook case for getting your loaded rig weighed while hook to truck ready to camp. With that info you could at least know which way to shift the load, fore or aft to reduce the item that might be over max. If shifting doesn't cut it, then it is time to remove some items...
