My wife and I love to camp! For the last two and a half years, we have camped in an older, heavy pop-up camper. We tow with my 2003 Toyota Tacoma Pre-Runner, V6. The pop-up, as previously stated, is a little on the heavy side, weighing in at about 3350 - 3650lbs. My Tacoma, which has no "towing pkg" pulled it with no problems, only losing a couple of mpg.
We recently purchased a new to us Hybrid TT. The UVW for the unit is around 3300lbs, and the GVWR is 4400. I added a brake control, 7way plug, transmission cooler, and the "towing pkg" fan clutch to my truck. I also use a weight distributing hitch with sway control. We pulled the unit home from NE Alabama to Central Georgia (about 200miles), and I am proud to report no problems other than performance. I ran with OD off, and got a whopping 9.6mpg!! Can anyone offer any advice on some items that could be added to my truck to help off set some of the mpg issues. I am entertaining a K&N Filter, but have not at this point.
