I already know my MPG wont be that good and to tow in 4th (no Auto Drive/Drive Gear).
The Tacoma book that came with my truck says the following:
6500lbs max towing capacity
10-13% for the Max tongue weight (650-845lbs)
I dont plan on hauling the trailer with a full tank of water (only about 5 gallons until I get to my destination)
I do plan on hauling this thing on long road trips to other states (other race tracks) about 6 times a year which can range from 200 - 1,000 miles one way.
I also do plan on hauling my Can-Am Spyder (699lbs) and Yamaha R1 (445lbs Wet). So a total of about 1,200lbs cargo in the back. This is why I need this size of a trailer and not say the smaller/lighter 19RR which wont fit the Spyder and R1.
* Before someone says it, I dont plan on getting another truck to tow with. This is the truck I have so I want others opinions on if this is doable and safe if I take it slow (under 70mph).
** Is there anything else I can get to "This Truck" that will make it tow this trailer better besides a super charger or gearing or am I just being paranoid and my truck should do fine with this toy hauler.
*** This is also my daily commuter
