New Diesel Owner planning to tow - understanding capacity

Just bought an Overland with a Diesel engine with plans to use it for towing. I was under the impression that the towing capacity was the major factor in how much I can tow, but when reading the manual it references the square footage of the front of the trailer being 55 square feet. I will be about 1500 to 2000 pounds under the towing capacity. I am guessing the front of my trailer to be about 64 square feet. Will that be okay.
