Considering your curb weight empty of that trailer is roughly 8900 and my 27 is 5800 i would certainly do no less than a 3/4 with weight distribution and sway hook up. Then again that is just me.
My experience with my Tundra and 30' Classic has been a little more favorable than that. I feel totally comfortable with my rig and have gotten as good as 13 mpg and get 12 mpg regularly. 10 mpg on the low side on a windy day.
Granted, I seldom ever exceed 60 mph. 65 is absolutely top speed for me, and would be top speed even in a 3/4 diesel.
Love my Tundra.
2nd choice, if I felt I had to, would be a GM Duramax/Allison.
The Tundra still has bigger back doors that open wider and more room in the back seat and the Tundra turns tighter, allbeit that may be because it is a 1/2 ton.
