    Boat and trailer was just over 6,000 pounds. My dad towed it a few hundred miles back from South Carolina. I wasn't with him, but he said it worked like a charm. Stock prerunner tacoma... I tow my bass boat often as well, but it only weighs like 2,000 pounds...

    Good luck man. If you're gonna be towing often, the Tundy is prolly the way to go. Just wanted to put in my $.02 though...

    Ultimately it's your decision and you shouldn't let someone else tell you what to get or not to get.

    There will always be someone that will say well I tow this and it's just fine. The Tacoma would be fine towing 3500 around however given you'll be doing it frequently and over long distances and with a full truck of people if it were me personally I'd want the extra room plus power and weight of a full size. Sure the Tacoma is rated for 6500 but I'd never want to be towing close to that on a frequent basis or on longer drives. Pulling is fine but controlling and stopping something that weighs a ton more than or truck is another. It's why trailer brakes are so important.

    I think the Taco would be an easier decision if you we're just going 15 minutes down the road to the boat ramp. But longer trips I think a full size would be more efficient with a truck load of people and 3500+ lbs of boat and gear.
