I take that it is a tow behind and not a 5th wheel? You should be alright, make shure you get a weight distrobution hitch and a anti swaybar set up

Put airbags under the truck, it will level the truck out and ride better both loaded and empty.

I can't imagine them making a tag along with a 14k gvw since the class V hitch is only rated at 12.5k (IIRC)...that said, should have no problems pulling a 5th wheel that size. (I second the previous recommendations for the helper springs or air bags, though.)

You will need a hitch with a 2 and a half inch bar if your current hitch is factory. Your truck will be heavy in the back and light in the front by a LOT . An equaliser is needed ,airbag or not.
I have done 10,000 pounds on a low profile dump trailer with mine. If you hit a dip in the road while turning thru an intersection (normal road crown),it will startle the crap out of you (without an equaliser).
