This is likely the best truck suggestion - not necessarily for or against the Tundra, but the point of Christopher's camper's tongue weight coming it at 950 pounds.
Figuring the average 1/2 ton is going to be somewhere in the ballpark of 1300-1800 pounds of payload capacity, with 950 pounds (give or take depending on how you load your camper), that leaves you with 450-950 pounds for driver, passengers, truck add-ons, topper shell, stuff in the truck bed, etc.
Know how to plan for payload capacity and pick a truck based on your needs.
