Towing my 20 ft trailer experience

Just arrived at Bridgeport, Cal. for an extended fishing trip of about two mo. Left Ventura Cal last Sat. Drove between 100 and 125 miles between fill ups.I drove between 55 and 60 mph the entire distance. Trailer is a 19.5 Wilderness trailer weighing approx. 5200 lbs. Drove the 395 Hwy and averaged 11.7 mpg. Towed with my 2013 Tacoma double cab. Truck is bone stock and had no problems at all. Have a WD hitch and P2 brake controller. This was my second long hall and the last time I got 10 to 11 mpg. Good luck. Bob S.

Sounds like a good size trailer for a Taco. Glad you made it safe!

If you don't mind me asking, what is the total length of your trailer? From hitch to bumper?
