How Much Can I Tow

I am thinking about buying a small travel trailer to use on long weekends. How much can a standard Taco pull without ripping out the transmission or rear end

Stick to the rated weight or under and you're fine. Also, having the tow package (transmission cooler) will definatly help. That said, ratings are always slightly under the max but to be honest, you really don't want to tow over long distances over or even at the max rating, it's not the funnest drive.
