Upgrade TV 2020 Tundra

I started out with 2018 20ft Flying Cloud Bambi with 2016 Toyota 4 Runner. I only used my trailer few times 2019 with a trip to Pittsburg, PA and some hills.I was concerned that I was at my limit 5000lbs fully loaded... I finally upgraded my TV 2020 Toyota Tundra and can't wait for first trip! My question is will the Tundra sync with the AS trailer brakes? Will it just work when I plug into Tundra? The dealer upgraded my 4-Runner with trailer brakes that worked with AS- Will it just work with new truck? Also, Should I still put sway bars on even though Tundra has a sway control? 7500lb max towing

My 2018 Tundra has a factory installed trailer brake controller. I can only speak for myself but mine works great. Plug in, set up the particulars in settings and off you go.

Weight distribution and sway control are a personal choice. Most here would say it would be wise to use both on this vehicle.

I tow a FC25FB with no issues in Utah.

My truck is a Tundra and my hitch is a Reese Straight-line which is a load distributing hitch with integrated sway control. I personally would not tow without sway control. I had a 16 cargo trailer with a standard hitch (ie tow on the ball) and it was at times unsettling in cross winds. My Airstream is a 27FB so I cannot speak about a 20er. Im sure many others will chime in with strong opinions.

I run a 2017 5.7 V8 Tundra Crewmax TV and I'm on my third 25' flying cloud.

All three connected to the trailer towing system with no problems. I assume you have the towing package.

The trailer anti sway bars and the truck anti sway bars are completely different systems.

I'd suggest you use anti sway system along with your weight distribution system.

Happy Camping

We are on our 5th Tundra and second 25’ Safari/FC (exactly same as first one just updated). 125,000 miles in Alaska, mountains, many NPs, with simple sway bars. Perfect combination. Big key is to reduce speed a bit for many reasons.
