IMO just because a truck is missing a camper package doesn't mean it can't be equipped with aftermarket accessories to make it work.

As I've posted elsewhere, the thing I would be most concerned with is not overloading the rear tires. You can add a large-capacity differential cover such as the one from Mag-Hytec that will double the diff's fluid capacity and will help keep it cool if you go a bit over it's rating, but you can't do anything if you exceed your tire rating... that's where you're asking for trouble. Last thing you want is a tire failure while carrying a camper.

There's lots of talk about sway with campers, so invest in good shocks, airbags, a big rear swaybar, and if that's still not enough, something like Torklift's Stabile Loads. Yes I mention those a lot, but it's because they made a world of difference for me. No affiliation, fwiw.
