I pull a Cruiser Radiance 26BH with my 2017 1794 Edition. Here are the specs. I also added sumo springs to the truck and use a blue ox sway pro with 1200lb bars.Click image for larger version

Looks like you need to take your Tundra to the alignment shop; you'll want to correct that caster/camber.

Poor Autocorrect — gets blamed for everything.

Kidding aside, can you post the payload capacity that you'll find on the driver side door jamb of your Tundra? This will give insights to your truck's capability.

The rest is a math game. Your trailer will weigh in the 7,100 - 7,600 lb range rolling down the road. This will drop 900+ lbs onto your hitch.

Since you have a bunkhouse, I'll assume at least a family of 4. That's around 550 lbs, fully clothed. Add 50 lbs for the WDH for an even 1,500 lbs. Then add in any pets, wood, bikes, tools, gear, Line-X, accessories, and stuff in or on the truck.

You'll want around 1,700 lbs of payload for that, based on the math above. Just swap out my estimates for real-world figures and you'll be all set. But, it always starts with that payload sticker.

Not the payload sticker. It's probably yellow and white, located on the driver's door or door frame.
It should say something like "Occupants and cargo should not exceed xxxxlbs". May also say Tires and Loading sticker.
One problem is the P-rated tires, should have LT tires for towing. The Rear GAWR is good though.
