Helpful Expert Reply:

To determine if your 2011 Toyota Tundra can pull your 32 ft travel trailer, you will need to find the towing capacity of your Tundra and the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the trailer to determine if you can tow the trailer safely. You will want to check your owners manual to verify the rating.

Based on my research it looks like your Fleetwood may have a dry weight of 6400 lbs and 860 lbs hitch weight.

The trailer hitch I recommend is The Draw-Tite hitch # 75527. This is a Class III hitch and is rated at 600 lbs tongue weight and 6000 lbs gross trailer weight. I would also recommend using a weight distribution system with sway control like Curt MV Weight Distribution System w Friction Sway Control # C17075. With this system your hitch's towing capacity will increase to 8000 lbs. This system will also help reduce sway and distribute the tongue weight of the trailer.

I have also attached two FAQ articles on weight distribution systems and tongue weight for you to review.
