But you already knew that.

As long as the trailer axles, suspension, and decking are in good condition, not to mention tires and bearings and other little things...I don't see why that should be a problem whatsoever.

I wouldn't hesitate to put that much weight on my trailer and mine's 11 years old.
Well also if your truck can handle that. I have a 14' PJ Dual axel trailer that is 6000 empty and have hauled up to 5yds of wet topsoil with no problem with my chevy 3500 heavy but doable if you take your time.
