great little truck.

Does any one have experince in maybe towing a 31 ft. travel trailer with a new tacoma/ with the tow package. It has a extra switch on the dash that gives a much lower gears but it does not go so fast. this is the first time i have had a toyota. any thoughts on this?

yes, put bags under the rear and brake controller box. but i wouldn't go over 20ft...i hauler a 1 ton car trailer with my 01 v6 and it pulls and stops perfectly fine. hauled a jeep few days ago...only problem i had was no bags.

Welcome to TW

Dodge Ram towing mirrors can be installed with some modification. Additionally, there are some prototype Tacoma specific towing mirrors being produced. Will try to find the link.

The only thing you have that gives lower gears is if you have a 4x4 and go into 4L.

Do NOT EVER run 4L or 4H on pavement. It will destroy your transfer case.
