I seen before, problem very nice dent in the back corner of cab!
In my view towing a 5er with a SB is a cab dent waiting to happen.
In my view the OP has enough payload because of the gas engine, but that same gas engine will bit him in the hills!

Laredo 340FL 37’7” 13,000GVW, pin weight = 2220lbs, Andersen Ultimate, Ram 3500 6.7 diesel, crew cab, SRW, 6.4’ bed, payload is 4000, towing is 17,000 = NO PROBLEM - I never had a truck, never towed a 5th wheel and my last trailer was only 3200lbs with highlander suv (5k towing cap.) AND I can barely tell the Laredo is back there - so EASY to drive! Also, NO PROBLEM with bed or cab dents or clearance or anything- my driveway is super tight and down hill and I twist and bend that sucker all over and almost 90 degree turning with no issues at all.
