We have been looking at trucks. We really like Toyota, and many family members have Tundras. As others have said payload is the Tundra's problem. If they come up with a heavy payload option there is no doubt that will be the truck for us.

Sure they did. Now if you try to tow that and break something on the truck see if TOYota will cover it under warranty..

We have a Tundra so I researched what it could tow a lot. I feel like we are flirting with the line with what we got. I did see some people on the Tundra forum make some mods to pull 5th wheels like redoing the suspension. you would have to check over there. I can't testify to how it pulls for us because our TT is still on order but I read a ton of people towing rigs similar to ours that said it didn't great. What you are talking about it a decent chunk heavier though.

And therein lies the problem of towing a 5th wheel with a 1/2 ton truck. It can tow the space shuttle but it can't carry it.

Looking at the tag on my Tundra (2011) the payload capacity is 1870 lbs, towing load 10,100 lbs. Typically when I tow, i have little in my TV, maybe 700 lbs including wife and "stuff". As I have said before no issue towing in Colorado Rockies. Campgrounds I have worked in I have seen Cougar 5w being towed by the same vehicle. They are 1/2 rated and, speaking with the owners said they had no issue towing the 5w in the mountains either...FWIW

Just checked Cougar specs. On the 25RKS the hitch weight is 1125. so with a light load in the truck you could haul it with out exceeding the limits ( perhaps pushing them a little) . This is an Xlite rig.

A 28SGS with three slide outs the hitch weight is 1410..

Guess this means, yes you can tow a 5W with a Tundra, but you have to watch what your towing so you don't exceed the capacity.

The yellow tag on your B pillar says 1870 lbs? Or the tow guide says a MAX of 1870 lbs. Those are 2 VERY different numbers. I have never seen a doublecab in real life that had more than about 1600 lbs. I have very few options on my Tundra and am at 1584 or something like that.

Your right, I missed the little tag says due to modifications your capacity has been reduced by 49 Lbs.. making the actual load capacity at 1821 lbs.
