7350 is a pretty healthy GVWR. Does the sticker say anything like "the total weight of occupants and cargo is not to exceed X,XXX lbs"? That will be your available payload as the truck was equipped from the factory.
As an alternative, you can take your truck to a scale loaded as close as you can get it with passengers and gear as if you were going camping and weigh it. Subtract that number from the 7350 GVWR listed on the sticker and that's your available payload.
As others have said, it's payload and Rear GAWR you will run out of first on that truck. "Towing Capacity" as listed in marketing materials is virtually irrelevant when it comes to pulling a big box down the freeway. Since you don't yet have the trailer, I would start with its GVWR, and 15% for tongue weight as a stepping off point for your weight estimates. That way you KNOW you will be within spec when the trailer is as heavy as it can be.
All that being said, and off the cuff, I think you'll likely be okay with that combination, but be sure to do your due diligence and check the numbers for your self to be certain.
