I've been towing my 184bh with a '07 Tacoma, crew cab, long bed. Its pretty much a completely stock truck. Toyota rates it to tow up to 6500lbs. Currently I am only using a sway controller and brake controller (No Weight Dist Hitch) and have not had any problem with the truck sagging. I have taken it on several highways and into the Pocono Mtns. The Tacoma did a good job with just a little loss of horsepower in the mountains but not enough to raise any concerns. That said if you get a Tacoma to tow the 184bh I would recommend the crew cab long bed and a set of replacement (towing) mirrors, brake controller and a WDH.

It's natural to think long and hard about your TT/TV combination, but the best time is before you make a purchase. With that said, your current setup will handle most short haul or occasional longer haul trips unless you live where the mountains are a factor. When you get around to upgrading the TV, I'd look to a 1/2 ton and although I'm a chevy guy, the Ford ecoboost is getting a lot of attention.
