Most newer 3/4 ton trucks will tow that weight...realistically, you don't NEED a 1 ton dually but they handle the higher pin/hitch weights better. When you look at TVs, be sure you know the pin weight of the 5er (assume 20% of FW) and verify that the TV rear axle load capacity will handle it. Then look at the Combined Weight Rating of the TV by adding the 5er weight (fully loaded) plus the TV weight (also fully loaded). Or an easier way is to just add together the dry/unloaded weights of both and add 15% (rough guesstimate for both fully loaded). For instance, my TV weighs 6K empty and the 5er weighs 7600. So, 6000 + 7600 x 1.15% = 15,640. My TV Combined weight rating is 16,200...so I'm good...plus I have weighed my rig fully loaded as well and it only weighs 15,093. I've got plenty of spare room under my max. I also calculate my pin weight to be 1800 #s, while my rear axle will handle over 3000. Again, plenty to spare.
