This guy^^^ has this line copied and pastes it just about every time he finds that chance for it to fit the situation...
I feel that you will be toward the top end of your limits with the Tundra but they are monsters. I am personally not a fan of them but still willing to give credit where it is due as I have seen many rigs pulled by the tundra places I wouldn't even have imagined.
A set of air bags and a good hitch will keep you safe and comfortable. The air bags will probably become a "must" almost instantly for you most likely.
I do agree with DDC though and pro pride or hensley is superior to any other hitch. They are not always needed but do add some serious security to the rig as they create a pivot point over the rear axle of the truck to pivot like a 5th wheel rather than sway like a bumper pull. They are pricey and heavy. I was able to purchase my unit through the site when someone switched over to a 5th wheel. I am %100 satisfied and glad I purchased it.
If you are planning to step up to a diesel puller in the next couple of years you may not want to invest quite so much in the hitch as the diesel itself will add weight to the tow vehicle which creates a much more stable rig.
One more thing to consider is where and when you plan to tow as well as how far... if you are planning long trips in and out of the mountains a more expensive hitch may be worth the investment, if you are planning to be an hour from home a couple times a year then maybe not.
A lot of things to consider as the market is saturated with hitches, but the propride and hensley truly are worth the money...
All things aside, set up correctly your truck will handle the trailer...
