Most likely a dually will be needed based on what your describing for size. 1 ton minimum

Automobilist..a race car trailer is typical low slung(low CG) unlike most toy haulers that sit high and have a high center of gravity. So the race trailer will always tow nicer than a high slung TH

My 1 ton crew cab dually towed my enclosed race trailer and my toy hauler just fine....but the toy hauler didn't handle NEAR as well as my race trailer due to the higher CG and neither is the size the OP is describing

you didn't mention what type of camping you do. if you boomdock or dry camp, i'd go bigger to be able to carry extra water on your truck.

A buddy traded his 5er for a heavy 42' Sandstorm TH. He initially towed it with his Chevy 2500 but soon saw the error of his ways. He said it towed pretty well but sometimes felt a little squirrely. He traded the Chevy for a Ford F-350 dually and loves how it tows now. I got to drive his rig for about 400 miles (my first time towing anything like that) and I didn't even know his trailer was back there as it towed that well.
