towing too soon?

just bought a 2013 tacoma, unfortunately I'm in a pinch and need to tow a 2000 pound pop-up camper (about approx. 400 miles round trip) I will probably only have a maximum of 500 miles on the truck. I know tacomas are great trucks but....... will I be killing my truck with so little break in mileage?

2000 lbs is nothing, if it were 5000 I might say yes, but at 2000 your fine

Your truck is already broke in, tow it.

It has what you need to know in the manual for tow break in, not sure what it says off the top of my head

I have a similar situation. I need to tow a small lawn trailer with a matters and a refrigerator. 100 miles round trip, my 2014 Tow PKG has 430 miles on it. What do you guys think, should I wait...?

The first weekend I had my truck I went on a 200 mile trip at hi turnpike speed. Next weekend I towed my bass boat.
Don't go stupid with the truck and you will be fine. Like Rick said. If it was higher weight then I would rethink.

If you really feel it is a problem you could rent a tow vehicle. But I think you'll be OK
