I am looking hard at a travel trailer. The specs for the DBL cab with the factory towing package say 650 lbs hitch weight and 6500 lbs Gross towing weight. I don't think the truck will do that much weight reliably.
I am looking at a a 22' 8 " travel trailer that has a unloaded dry weight of 3220 lbs with a hitch weight of 325 lbs Trailer GVWR rating of 5200 lbs.
Of course I'll have a brake controller and equalizing hitch. No one I talked with would let me attach the vehicle to one of their trailers without one and I am smarter than to try it without.
One dealer told me about all I could tow was a Jayco Feather light Sport Series, either with tent beds or a 16 foot fully enclosed . The fully enclosed one was model 165 2835 lbs unloaded Hitch 440 lbs and GVWR rating 3,500 lbs I was looking at the Jay Flight 19RD but at with a dry weight of 4140 lbs and a hitch weight of 550 lbs he though it would be to much for the Tacoma. Its 23' 3" long. The 165 is a little to small for me.
I have not browsed the forum much yet and I will as the answers may already be posted but sometimes its easier to ask the question that to spend loads of time and have to ask anyway.
Oh I also have the famous yellow sticker that says the truck has a capacity weight reduction of 290 lbs.
I am wondering what others are towing weight and trailer size reliably with their Tacomas?
Thanks for any insight you can provide.
