That's a truck, hitch, brakes and trans cooler question.

The camper was just gifted to me so new to all thank you
hills or lake? (NH has both)

How new? any towing options (brakes + cooing + sway bars?_)

If not, fly to TX and pick up a used (rust free) Cummins for $2000-$4000 (I just got my 3rd) (I keep a fleet)

Be safe. (BRAKES) be considerate of your rig (tranny and axles / weight / cargo / handling

1/2tons are utility use, but very inexpensive and handy for light duty. 10,000# is beyond that, but is capable.(on the flat / open road)
