Well I am kinda partial to the 2015! (I think the White ones make the most HP and Torque) :)
That said, you are at the upper limits or over with that size travel trailer for sure.

If you cannot get the 2500 or 3500 with a Cummins Diesel, skip the EcoDiesel altogether and save yourself headaches.

I would say your truck might have an aftermarket tune. I don't think any ecodiesels came with an engine brake. Maybe someone will correct me though.

That size of trailer would not be fun or safe to tow.
I have a 2022 and a 28’ and it’s a hand full on ten ply tires. Miss my one ton.
