I think it is definitely doable, but may put you right on the edge. I would go weigh your vehicle with you and your family in it. Then figure that the listed hitch weight is dry and also may or may not be correct in any case. Decide how much extra payload you and your passengers might want to carry. And then do some math. You also want to remember that if you will not have water available to you at your destinations you will want to bring some with you, which could add to your hitch weight depending on where the tanks are placed. I have a tendency to push things a bit and might go for a trailer that big if I had tires that could carry a heavier load than the OEM supplied which I personally do. So for me I would tackle that trailer no problem.
Have you looked at them yet? If you are serious about purchasing tell them you want to hitch up to it and yank it around a good bit. If it feels good go for it. Just realize you may be right on or already over the line for some of the load carrying specs. I think I saw max. hitch weight was 850lbs? I mean that's pushing it, but I am not the weight police. You want to have fun, but nothing trumps keeping you and your passengers safe. Have you done much towing? The less confident you are in knowing your vehicles the closer I'd recommend staying strictly within the manufacturers ratings.
If you don't mind, take a picture of the stickers on your door jamb and post them here. I'm curious to see if the ratings are exactly the same as what are on my '11 QX56. I suspect they are. Maybe slightly higher because of the 275/60r20 or 265/70r18 tires.
