"trailering capacity of up to 7484 kg (16,500 lb.)" This is a quote right from the GM web site. but with your set up, my buddy (he works at the hitch factory (trailer hitch and acc') said he wouldn't tow (5th wheel) anything over 12 000lbs with your set-up. Hope this helps, best of luck

the 16500 capacity casper is talking about is the gross combined weight rating (truck and trailer) Your truck is rated to tow 10900 lbs. with a 5th wheel hitch.
