    4800......but with dual axle trailer with brakes/controller makes it an easy day. About 14.5-15 mpg.

    Lots of shifting. First pull with the new truck. Had to get used to the transmission. ECT on. The snow on the roads didn’t help at all. Thinking about installing 1 inch left blocks to the rear to my stock suspension.

    Sumosprings, airbags or a full new leaf spring set. Blocks will make ride and towing axle-wrap worse.

    The OVTune 91 performance makes a huge difference when towing. Took it out before tune and it did it’s job up the mountains. Taking it back out in a couple weeks and seeing how this tune helps with the uphill

    What’s the specs on your trailer? How well does it pull? My passport is a 19’. Dry weight is 3875. But I figure I’m around 5000 or so loaded up.

    It's a Camplite 16DB, 2750 dry, rated for 5000 fully loaded. Tows really well with some water in the freshwater tank to keep weight forward. No need for WDH or anything other than a brake controller. Not the roomiest TT, but perfect for what I use it for.

    Good God. What's the gross weight on that Moby Dick there?

    5700lbs, weighed at the truck scales. 570lbs tongue weight. Droops the rear a bit but actually feels OK on the ass of the Tacoma

    Gives me hope that my future Airstream at 3800 dry is feasible for 3-4 times a year.

    Totally feasible! As long as you got good brakes on the airstream

    It’ll definitely carry more windage than your boat though
