Keep toad under 5000 lbs and you should be good. The heaviest configuration of that vehicle was 4788 lbs. do not load a bunch of stuff in the toad. Also, do not tow without supplemental brakes.

Our 2016 33C Bounder had a 5000 lb hitch but the loaded weight was 22,000 lb which left only 4000 lbs for a toad.

It is not only the hitch rating but the GCWR of the motorhome plus the toad is also a limit.
