Sounds right. GM says you should never
exceed any of the weight limits of the tow vehicle. GVWR is usually the weight limit you'll reach first when dragging a trailer with an SRW pickup.
If you promise to not allow any passengers in the truck when towing, then you could tow a 5er toyhauler with a GVWR of up to around 12,000 pounds without exceeding the GVWR of the tow vehicle. Not much choice in 5er toy haulers with a GVWR of only 12,000 pounds, but here's a 30-footer with GVWR of 10,306 pounds, with three queen-size beds plus an 8' sofa:

Here's another one with GVWR of 11,979, two queen-size beds and two sofa sleepers:

And also look at travel trailer tow haulers. Hook up any TT toy hauler with a ProPride hitch and it will tow as good as any 5er.

Here's a 30-footer with a GVWR of less than 9,000 pounds,and plenty of sleeping space for your crew:
