I'm worried about the suspension...and transmission...we would not be moving it to fast, but just want to be sure that this would be possible..any input would be helpful...thanks
I have a 1500 dodge HEMI and tow a 30ft trailer all the time.

I have a 1500 Hemi too it's a 2012 Sport, with the new coil springs, and a 30' trailer that weighs 7700 lbs. for the distance you are going don't worry about the truck even if you were hitting the highway. Only reason I mention the coil springs is that I installed airbag to stabilize the coils and stop the truck from squatting when you put the trailer on. But then I haul at least once a week, at least couple hundred kilometers with my 1500.

The long short, yes your truck will do it without a problem

You should have no problem. I pulled a 30' Terry Dakota with a slightly modified Dodge Dakota for 7 years no problem in flat lands of Ohio.
