Hi all, and by the way, this is a great forum with a ton of information.
I think i have read just about every thread dealing with towing. And i do not think i have my question answered, i know, hard to believe since there are so many threads about towing.
I am about to buyon an 09 Tacoma Access cab SR5 Prerunner.. It has the 4 cylinder with Manual trans. Most of my driving will be about a 100 mile round trip to work everyday, so i think the most important aspect for me is the gas mileage. However, I also have a 95 FourWinns 18' bowrunner 3,450# that I will be pulling on the weeknds in the summer, maybe 8-10 trips a year. The farthest I would be towing is about 50 miles. I feel pretty confident that it will do fine on the road but my question is will there be a problem pulling it out of the water up the ramp? Currently the truck does not have a tow hitch, I will put that on myself before towing. Just want to make sure it will pull the boat out of the water. That would be embarassing! Any help would be great. I know the 3,450 is rigth at the max towing weight. Anybody else tow something that close to the max?
This is my first post, but hopefully not my last.
