Changing my Tow Vehicle

Today I made the decision to trade in my Excursion on a 2004 Dodge 2500 SLT Quad Cab 4x4 5.9 Cummins and 3.73 gears. I am buying this pick up to currently tow my TT, but am curious its 5th wheel rating in case I decide to upgrade later on.
I searched Dodges website and saw it is rated for 10,000lbs with a W/D system but looking on the Trailor manor site it states 13,000lbs as it is configured.
Neither site had any 5th wheel rating. Does anyone here know what the ratings for towing a 5th wheel are as well as with the W/D system?

Thanks Sundancer,That's the same chart I was reading on Dodge's website. The column for Tow Wt is the one confusing me, is that for pulling a travel trailer as well as for a fifth wheel? The reason it is confusing is some other manufacturers have an actual listing for fifth wheel towing and it was different than for travel trailer towing.
