X2 on the one ton if you can. I bought a 3/4 back in '11. I should of bought a one ton. I just upgraded to a dually not so much for my payload needs now but for the stability and extra payload in the future if we want to upgrade to a heavier 5r later.
The DW calls it the LT , Last Truck

Just suggestions. Get whatever pickup that can handle the trailer. One of my neighbors pulls his Rockwood with a Tundra. He says it does the job.
Happy camping

I agree with Ford Idaho

Get a 1 ton dually, the stability is far better when you
fighting the wind and rain. Buy big and save, buy small
and you will be wasting your time and money do to the
fact you will want to upgrade shortly..

As stated the extra payload may be needed in the future
if you want to upgrade to a heavier 5r later. Also take
into consideration the weight of the 5er when loaded
as well.

Do not let the salesman tell you it's ok to get a small
1/2 ton, it's unsafe, you will be very sorry when
on your 1st trip when you have to fight both truck and
trailer there and back

go with a single wheel 1 ton. Much more payload than a 3/4 ton for very small price difference. Tundra's biggest issue is fuel economy/range. Everyone I have talked to barely gets over 100 miles per tank. That could put you in a bad situation. I can go 400 towing miles no problem with my 3500 diesel.

We have a 267RLS and love the trailer. It had the normal small issues that all of them have. We pull with 2014 Ram 2500 HD with the Hemi engine. It gets about 10.5 to 11.5 MPG. The 2500 HD pulls our 5er great.

I have to agree with Davel1971, I have a F350 Dually with 6.0
International engine and get 12mph if not more and run around
375 up to 390 miles to a tank of fuel while towing my Chappy.
It's all in how you drive, if you keep your foot in it all the time
of course you will get lower mileage, I drive around 62 to 64mph
and see lots of hot rods passing me with there trailers.
