I've read Maverick's Tacoma Towing Bible multiple times and it gave me some confidence that I could tow my car to weekend track events but then I read some other threads on the forum and I'm starting to wonder if a Tundra is a better option.
I currently have an '06 V6 Access Cab with the TRD and towing package options. I started doing track events this year with my car and got bit by that bug. Now, it seems like I have a track event at least twice per month. Some are only 2 hours away (New Jersey Motorsports Park) and others are 6+ hours away (VIR, Watkins Glen).
I'm thinking it would be great to tow my car to these events instead of putting so many highway miles on it by driving it to the events. It appears that a decent Trailex trailer will weigh 1500 lbs with options. With the car, that is 5,000 lbs total plus luggage, tools, food, people, etc.
Based on what I have read here, I'll likely need airbags and a dual cam sway control as well as addon mirrors and a brake controller. But with all of this, do you think the Tacoma will still be suitable for those long hauls?
My Tacoma (bought new) only has 30k miles on it so its still running and looking like new. I'd hate to replace it with a used Tundra (2008+) which is way too big for me to enjoy driving. But if that is the only safe and comfortable option, I'd do it. I dont have the option to keep the Tacoma if I get a Tundra.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
