Tundra towing

I've looking at '13 Tundra 5.7L 4x4 TRD Rockwarrior to use for daily driving, and eventual towing of a Serenity 25RB. The tundra is at a good price and low mileage. The particular trim has a max towing capacity of 7800# and a payload of 1640#. The GVWR of the serenity is 7300# and a hitch weight of 835#. By my calculations that will leave me with approximately 400# to play with after considering the weights of me, my partner, dog, and hitch weight. If I get the appropriate weight distribution sway hitch, is this particular trim appropriate to tow the serenity 25RB? Or should I be looking for a different trim which will give me 9900#+ towing capacity?

I am not familiar with the Rock Warrior. I had an '08 Tundra that I traded in on my 2017 SR5 with the TRD package. I pull my 25 FB without issue. I will warn you that your tongue weight will be heavier than what you posted. I have two batteries, two propane tanks and a spare tire on the tongue. When going camping the propane tanks are usually full.

All that said, even with the generator I pack, some chairs, extra water and a little bit of firewood, I am within specs. I know this because I have weighed my setup when on the road. In Washington, you can pull into a weigh station, even when it is closed, and they allow you access to seeing the scales. Pretty nice deal.
