    the trailer wont be an issue, how much you put in it will be. dirt is heavy, wet dirt is heavier, gravel is really heavy.

    a hlaf ton with extended cab should be able to handle 7000 lbs ok, maybe more depending on your rear end gearing. one thing you can do is get a trailer with electric brakes and a brake controller. will make things much safer. someone with more knowledge then I can help you more.
