New boat

My family just got a new boat and I know i will get a chance to take it out with with my friends and use the Tacoma to Pull it.

It is a 2012 yamaha 242 limited S
It is around 5000 lbs

I will post a pic later today

As far as towing:
I bought a prodigy 3 brake controller
I am going to get new brake pads before the summer

I have towed many things but not quite as heavy as this before with my truck.

Anyone tow anything similar or have anymore recommendations I could do to make my rig more capable.

I have double cab long bed with the tow package and v6

Looks like you should be fine. Does the 5k include the trailer? I have the I4 with a limit of 3.5k and have pulled closer to 4k without issue, just start slow and leave room for stopping. Others will chime in.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Best thing to do is hook up the boat, fuel, and gear your gonna carry, and see what the total weight of the combo is. See if your within the towing rating of the truck.

Really doesnt mean anything. Best is to hook it up, load the truck with the cooler, gear, and fuel the boat, then weigh it on a scale. Most landscaping places will let you weigh for free.

It's a sweet boat. Can't wait to hook it up to the taco and get out on the water. Think we are going to break it in in April

I think he said he's got a tow package so it should already have a transmission cooler, no?

I talked to a guy with a taco when i was camping one time. He was over a couple spaces and had towed a 6300lb airstream up into the mountains of CO. You should be good to go

I have a friend that owns that same boat. You really have to be careful during slow maneuvers due to no Rutter for turning. Nothing like a stern drive. He burns anywhere from 10-13 gallons per hour running between 28-35 mph, so they do love fuel. Also got to watch turns under power cause the ass end will pass the front just like a jet ski. Truck will do OK, just keep both hands on the wheel, speed down and watch out for the other guy. Enjoy!!

Does the trailer have surge brakes? My Four Winns has surge brakes on it, as I think most boat trailers do. Something to do with the water and the electricity... What I'm getting at, is you might not need the brake controller.

Thanks for all the complements guys.

Won't get to pick it up till april but have already been by to look at it.

cc350 - I test drove a couple of them before we decided to get it so i am kinda familiar with driving them. They changed them a little for the 2012. had it at about 35-40 and turn as hard as i could and it held tight.

T.J. - not sure about the brakes on the trailer. Will look more into that.
