That hitch weight is "dry" hitch weight. Ignore it and compute your own.
4256 + 3326 = 7582 GVWR. Your tongue weight is about 12% of gross trailer weight, which is about average. So estimate wet and loaded trailer weight of 7,000 pounds and tongue weight of 840 pounds.
That 840 pounds of hitch (tongue) weight is probably going to mean you'll exceed the GVWR of your tow vehicle when wet and loaded on the road.
So that's probably too much trailer for your tow vehicle unless you are extremely stingy in allowing any weight to be hauled in the trailer.
For your receiver hitch, note that 840 pounds of probable tongue weight above. So I'd want a receiver rated for at least 1,000 pounds hitch weight with a weight-distributing hitch. My choice would be the Reese Strait-Line trunnion bar hitch, with a 1,200-pound WD rating.
buy a cheap hitch. If it costs less than $500 online, complete with adjustable shank and sway control, then that's a cheap hitch.
For brake controller, I got along fine with a simple time-delay DrawTite Activator II for over 12 years towing an 8,000 pound trailer. But most folks prefer a proportional brake controller such as the Tekonsha Voyager or Prodigy.
If Totoyota makes a factory "integrated trailer brake controller" (ITBC) for your Toy, that will probably be your best bet, but more expensive than the Activator II or Voyager.
