gooseneck hitch

Are there any updates on a gooseneck hitch for a Tacoma. I have 2 horses to pull and would much rather do it with a goosneck if possible.
thanks for any info

Most goosenecks are sized for a full size pickup. I haven't seen any for the Tacoma, just the Tundra.

gooseneck

Thanks JD, that's what I was afraid of. I bought my Tacoma new in 2001 and hate to trade it in. It's been a super truck

As long as you don't exceed the weight rating of your truck those horses will pull fine with a Class III weight distributing hitch.

gooseneck

Yeah, I've pulled with both, a bumper and a gooseneck and just prefer the gooseneck. The turns are trickier since it doesn't follow the truck's path, but overall it just seems to be more stable and pull better. Just a personal preference. I'm suprised that a GN is not available for the Tacoma, but I guess I will look for a Tundra. Thanks for your response
