What type of trailer are you towing? You mentioned 19' - but you didn't mention if its an RV or a car hauler or ....??
How much weight do you expect to add to the trailer?
You mentioned you have the factory class IV hitch... Do you have the TOWING package? The towing package includes tranny cooler - which is probably a benefit to have.
As long as you don't exceed 6500lbs and don't exceed the GCVWR - which I think is something like 11,100lbs. Trailer brakes are a HUGE benefit and I'd recommend making sure the trailer has them. Also - a weight distributing hitch which will help the truck handle the load better.
