Depends on how your Tundra is configured and your TV/TT loading habits.
Eliminate some of the guesswork and take your Tundra under "loaded" conditions (full fuel, passengers, cargo, etc.) to a CAT scale and weigh it (takes 3-minutes and about $9). Subtract the CAT scale weight from the GVWR noted on your Tundra's driver door..., the remaining weight is your available "payload capacity" for a TT's "loaded" tongue weight and a WDH (WDH weighs about 50lbs). What many folks overlook is that the TV supports a TT's loaded tongue weight.
Not knowing your personal loading habits..., take the "worst case" loaded weight scenario of the 2014 White Hawk 29 REKS at 8,500lbs (it's GVWR). The recommended loaded tongue weight will be in the 13% to 15% range of 8,500lbs = 1,105lbs to 1,275lbs. Not everybody tows a TT at it's GVWR, but some may if they tow with a full fresh water tank.
Also, keep in mind that the Jayco published unloaded weights are not reflective of the actual factory ship weight (noted on yellow sticker on TT). The Jayco published UVW is 6,500lbs for the 29 REKS, but 6,900lbs would be closer to the actual ship weight.
Most 1/2 ton pickups have an attractive Tow Rating, but the majority fall short in Payload Capacity when towing a heavy TT.
