That truck had a standard towing rating of between 4,300 lbs. and 7,500 lbs. With your V6 engine, you shouldn't count on more than 4,300.
And yeah, there aren't many TTs with a GVWR of 4,300 or less. But all is not lost. Think about a fold-down "tent trailer". There are some with GVWR over 4,300, but most are between 3,000 an 4,000. I would look for one with a GVWR of about 3,500 pounds. Start with this one:
Flagstaff Tent Pop Up Camper by Forest River
Or if Darling Wife insists on a pottie in the camper, then maybe this one, which is a bit heavier with GVWR of 3,810?
Rockwood Tent Pop Up Camper by Forest River
We had a much smaller (8-foot floor, no slide) fold-down camper for 20 years when the kids were home, and our pottie was a 5-gallon "slop jar" with a toilet seat lid. It did the job.
We drug that camper all over the USA, from Maine to Washington to Floridaand back to Denver several times. One time we set up ina rainstorm at Sequoa Nat'l Park. Lots of fond memories.
