I am brand new to the forum so be easy on me.
I have a 2007 Tacoma double cab 4x4 V6 with tow package and 201K miles on her.
I am buying a new boat with a dry weight of 4,400 pounds plus a trailer weight of 1,200 pounds. I suspect after adding the trailer and liquids I am going to me near 6,500 lbs.
I plan to trailer the boat a few times a year (30 miles or so) since the boat will be stored on a lift. I do want the ability to tow it on trips up to a few hours away.
Can I use the Tacoma to tow this boat or is it too heavy? I don't care about gas mileage but I do want to be safe.
I welcome any suggestion or upgrades that may help me. If I'm screwed just say so.
Be kind, be honest.
