Yep, sounds good as far as matching trailer weight to tow vehicle. That's too much trailer for all but the rarest half-ton pickup, so it's a good match for your 2500.
One possible gotcha! Have the seller include the weight distribution (WD) hitch of your choice installed on the trailer as part of the deal to buy the trailer. The Windjammer is a V-nose trailer, and some V-nose and U-nose trailers cannot have a Reese Strait-Line or Equal-I-Zer WD hitch installed on them because the nose of the trailer covers up the A-frame of the tongue where the WD hitch must be installed. DO NOT
buy that trailer unless it has a good WD hitch with built-in sway control installed on the trailer tongue.
For the curious IRV2 members, here's the floorplan of the Windjammer 3025W that has three slides, two entry doors, and excellent use of the V-nose interior:
The only critique of that floorplan Darling Wife would have is that at a rest stop she would have to slide the bed out a foot or so in order to get to the pottie without having to crawl over the bed. But we had a small 5er for years that we had to slide a room out a foot or so in order to get into the pottie room, so it's an irritant, but not a deal killer. Also, there is not much closet space for an extended RV trip, but it may be enough for your use.
Grumpy ole man with over 60 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7'x16' 5,000-pound flatbed utility trailer, my tow vehicle is a 2019 F-150 Lariat 3.5L EcoBoost SuperCab with Max Tow (1,904 pounds payload capacity).
