Would this be a good size for a 2012 V6 Tacoma with tow package?
I tow a 23' toy hauler with my Tacoma that weights 5000 lbs with our gear and the motorcycle in it. The Tacoma tows it well but if the grade is too steep, it will fall below the posted speed. Other than that, it does fine with the size of trailer we have.
One thing you should have is a anti-sway system incorporated into your weight distribution hitch. 5000 lbs behind a Tacoma is a lot in a strong side wind or even when passing an 18 wheeler.
