You need to check the payload with the 5th wheel hooked up, your only allowed 2250 lbs, so even though it says it can tow 8600 that's pulling the weight, not hauling. I still believe that if your going to tow anything with more than one axle you need at least a 3/4 ton truck.

Make sure you have the correct tongue weight on the hitch. You may also need to install heavy duty shocks and tires.

The trailer probably has shocks so make sure those are good.

Your truck should be able to handle the trailer as long as the total weight is not too much. You should have the trailer weighed but tennisshoes is right. If you are going to tow a lot, get a F250.
