You oughta be fine, but you really need to check your tongue weight and trailer loading.
The truck's probably rated at 770lb tongue weight. (10% towing capacity). It's worth all your stuff to get what you need to check the trailer's weight and rebalance if necessary.
Also, make sure you have have good brake pads all around. If there's under 50%, I'd swap them out...
When in doubt, go slow. In fact, just go slow.

Oh yeah, and driving and watching movies is a bad idea. Get some music, books on tape, or comedy routines.

Hmm...
