From my experience, having the load you are towing weigh less than the vehicle which is doing the towing is a very good start. The camper would have it's own brakes to be legal I am guessing, are they manual or electric?

On a camping trip to Europe 6 years ago I was amazed at the amount of what we consider in Australia to be small cars towing these Euro light weigh full on caravans. It was not unusual to see VW Golfs with small vans on the back. 

So I recon you can trust in the number Toyota is quoting, and as always when towing, drive with much more caution, as physics works against you when you double your mass with a trailer on the back.

I assume you've not installed a brake controller yet.

There is a few on the market, with the most popular from what I've researched being the Redarc Tow Pro Elite as it's good, plus it can be installed in small places and you don't end up with a box that you're likely to hit everytime you jump in and out of the car. You can pick one up from $260 - $360, then you'll need to have it installed unless you can tackle yourself, I believe you can buy a wiring harness to make that easier.

An auto electrician will charge $300 - $500 to install from my recent experience.
