Im new to the forum and also new to owning, driving, and towing with a truck. Ive read through a lot of the threads on this forum about towing but would still like to reasure myself before I do something.
I have a 2011 Toyota Tacoma T|X Pro, Double Cab, V6, Auto, Shortbed. I believe the max tow rating is around 6,500lbs. I want to tow a 2006 BMW M3 weighted between 3200-3500lbs depending on fuel, extra tool etc to the race track.
I can rent a trailer from U-Haul for no more than $50.00, the trailer is a heavy 2200lbs. So a total of 5400-5700lbs all together w/ vehicle. The U-Haul website asks for the towing vehicle and the vehicle being towed. It computes its math but tells me that it is not compatible.
I believe it can work with everything I have researched so far and read. I believe the only thing I need to buy is a hitch ball, the electrical harness came with the truck, and possibly a break controller? The trailer comes with atomatic hydraulic surge brakes? I believe I need to buy something to operate that.
Any reasurance and help is greatly appreciated.
