Their website states GVWR of 18,000 lbs, dry weight of 14,043 (which is usually way under), and hitch weight of 3,346. Once you get all of your normal gear loaded up (clothes, food, stuff to cook with, etc), you're already pushing yuor GVWR of the trailer, nevermind the GCWR of the truck. That better be an ultra light Harley.
Will your truck pull it? Yes. Will it stop it? Eventually. Will you be SOL if you wreck while towing? Hell yes. There was a story in the news a few months ago. A guy towing a huuuge toy hauler with his 2500 Chevy lost control going down the Grapevine in California. He wrecked, and killed a little girl. Insurance told him to pound sand, cause he was way overloaded for the truck.
