You should be fine with that setup. I have a Tundra myself, and love it.

I'm pulling an Outback 227RL, around 8K lbs loaded with a 2011 Tundra, 5.7L, tow package, and 4:30 rear end. It pulls all day long at 2000 RPM with 6th gear locked out, no problems. Like others, the gas mileage is the only drawback at 10-11 MPG towing, but the truck is also a daily drive so it meets my needs fine. For a 1/2 ton truck, I wouldn't have anything but a Tundra.

Honestly, the mileage is not bad for a gasser with this much hp and torque, its the range for really long trips is my only nit pick. It has a 26 gallon tank, 6 of which is for reserve at empty. If you fill at 1/4 tank, you will be filling around 160-170 miles. Most new diesels are only doing 12-13 towing big loads now. Myself, I like to get out and stretch my legs after two and half hours driving anyway.

I have a 2011 Tundra with all the goodies. Big engine, tow pkg., etc., etc. I pulled the hills of eastern Ohio last week on I77 at around 65mph. Everything did great! Am going again next week but plan on 1 change. I am going to knock the speed down about 5-10 mi. per hr.

If I am in a hurry, what the heck am I doing with a camper.
