Springs and Shocks?

Towing a 5000 pound RV trailer with my 2006 Tundra with factory towing package (confirmed original).

Going over some road bumps and road mogul small hills we get a seesaw effect. It stops after a second. Makes my wife and I a little seasick.

Could this be springs or shocks ? Or are we just overly sensitive ? We do fine unloaded. But we do take seasick medicine for long trips of three hours or more.

Shocks. The primary purpose of a shock absorber is to dampen the oscillation that comes from a spring that compresses and returns. How old are the shocks on yer Tundra? OEM or aftermarket?

OEM original likely. 100k miles are likely. Vehicle purchased used two years ago.
