I have only pulled TT's, but the last one I had was 32 ft Jayco Jayfeather and it had a much lower roof height which made it MUCH easier to pull due to the lower wind resistance. The 5er's and most slide out TT's are extremely tall and push a lot of wind. And that just makes towing more difficult. The Jayfeather had smaller slide outs and a low frame height, and thus lower roof height. It was a nice trailer.
I found the with the Tundra anti sway rear suspension design that the TT was very nice to pull. I have pulled them with Chevy 2500's, Ford F-150's, and Suburbans, but the Tundra is a whole different game. It is way better and more comfortable. I even accidentally left the friction sway bar off once and I could not tell the difference. It stays nice and straight even in strong cross winds, does not get pulled into semi's, just stays nice and straight. You can feel the trailer moving around some, but it requires almost no input from teh drive to stay nice and straight.
So, I suggest going with a TT that has a low roof height.
Also, with the TT, you can use the spring bars to level everything out and you don't need air bags or other suspension upgrades to carry the extra weight of a 5er.
When adjusted and set up right, a TT and weight distributing height works very nice.
