I would say that needs a one ton.

You could do it with a 3/4 ton but would be on the edge with the 13960.
If you are getting a truck go larger than what you need the first time so you do not have to upgrade if you get a larger trailer.

X2, I purchased a 2500 but should have gotten a 3500.

Listen to all other recommendations and go with a one ton

IMO, a 3500 w/ DRW. Some people don't like the DRW because of the width of the truck. BUT, you can't beet the DRW for stability. And if you're even thinking of camping where there are hills, get a diesel.
