Rockwood 2109S/Tacoma hitch suggestions

I am getting ready to buy a 2014 Rockwood Mini Lite 2109S and trying to figure out which hitch to put on my Tacoma. The dealership I am leaning towards wants to put the Reese Pro Series w/d with sway control. Any other ideas I should consider? Also ideas for the brake controller too. Thanks!

Is your Tacoma rated to pull this size of trailer?? See attached. It seems that a 2013 Tacoma can pull a max trailer of 3500 lbs, this trailer is 3624 lbs dry and max GVWR is 4769 lbs. Unless I'm missing something this is not a good match.... What is your vehicle rating?

I have the TRD package and the tow package on it and it is rated to pull 6500lbs.

Ouff that sounds better....I'm using a ProPride 3P hitch and love it. Others will tune in with other suggestions....happy camping. For brake controller I would go with the Prodigy P3 controller. I had it on 2004 F150 and again no issues. I now have integrated brake controller in my F250.

Brake Controllers - Tekonsha

I am happy with my Equalizer 4pt hitch. Everyone has their favorites. Tekonsha is a good brand like the Fonze says.

I would hook it up & what it does to my truck 1st. I don't need anything for my Tundra but is is a bit more truck. I have driven a 4Runner & it would need some help, I haven't driven a Tacoma so I would just be guessing.

For a previous TT I used Reese. It worked great, sway control was not needed.

I don't have the same truck as you but I use the 600 lbs Equalizer hitch with that same camper. I like it because there is no sway control that needs to be disengaged before backing up.
