I've crossed the scales at the scrap yard at about 24K lbs... truck and trailer was about 12K, load at about the same... stopping was scary, front wheels wanted to lock up.
However, this was with a bumper pull trailer, not goose neck. The fact that you are using a goose neck will help alot, so the same weight will handle better in your case.
The basics apply, use common sense, allow room for stopping, make sure your trailer brakes work good, adjust your mirrors, be aware of your surroundings, etc.
Good luck, and have fun in moab!
