I'd bet money that after the hitch, people, equipment etc you'll be over your max payload. I pull my 27.5bhs with a 2010 Ram 2500 CTD and I'm pushing my max payload loaded but without water. Previously I pulled a 5800 lb loaded trailer with a 2005 F150 with the 5.4, and knowing how that pulled there is no way I'd even consider pulling a 10k gvwr 5th wheel with it. For those saying they don't know it's even there behind a 1500, I call bs as I know it's behind my Ram that weighs 2k more and has a diesel. Same grades in the mtns here I was pulling thatb5800 lb trailer with the F150 at 25 mph, I can comfortably pull the HT at 65.

I have to agree with Troutslayer. We tow our FW, Eagle SuperLite HT 27.5 RLS with a 2012 GMC 2500HD D/A combo and while it has no trouble pulling the FW, we do know it's there, especially when I look out the rear view mirror, LOL. We also tag a boat along behind the FW, a Crestliner Super Hawk 1900 and while the 2500HD pulls it just fine, you do know it's there. We can accelerate from 40 mph up a 6-7 % grade to about 65 at the crest with this combo but it does have to work a bit.
