It shouldn't be an issue. You didn't mention what year truck you have and what cab style you have. No matter the case, it should not be a problem. The lowest rated V8 Tundra I saw was still rated for about 6,500 lbs.

Towed our jayco 250 special at around 5000 lbs with my 06 Tundra with no issues. Use a good WDH system and you will be good.

Thanks for the info. we are looking into buying a 2013 tundra with 4.6l we have the 2008 tacoma prerunner now its supposedly good for 6500 lbs but its really struggling with the trailer weight I bought the equalizer hitch to try and help also just seems like to much weight. Just don't want to buy another truck and end up with the same problem. Maybe we should look into the 5.7l V8 tundra any opinions?????

The 5.7 would be even better. We have a 2010 5.7 Tundra with the towing package and our trailer is probably about 6,300 when it's loaded. Tundra doesn't even break a sweat.

For the difference in price, the 5.7L is a no-brainer. I had a 4.6 with a 22FB and I thought it was right at the limit of the comfort range. My 5.7L pulled my 8000 lb Keystone easily. I've since traded for a F-250, not because the truck would pull, but because I wanted more payload and the option of moving up to a fiver. The 5.7L is a very capable TV, especially with the 4:30 rear end.

I have the tundra with the 5.7 liter. In my opinion it works like this.

I have never heard anyone say..." Wow my T.V. has toooo much power!!!! "

There is no substitute for cubic inches. One tow across the Colorado Rockies will verify that. Buy the most truck you can afford. Nobody has ever woke up one morning and said, "Man, I wish I has less truck".
