Bottom line if your towing at near max, max or over max with a 1500. Your endangering not only yourself but others on the road. I for one would rather be safe than sorry . I have towed my 8000# trailer with both my OLD 1500 Hemi and my current 3500 CTD.
Not only do I feel safer but so does my wife. We like our somewhat large trailer she is claustrophobic. If your married you know happy wife happy life. Sure if it was just me and my dog I would be happy with a little 17-18' trailer.
I am for one not trying to make anyone buy a bigger truck or bigger trailer.
But face it facts are facts
