    I got a call from my good freind at the toyota dealership and he made me a offer! Trade my 2007 tacoma with a 2007 tundra, less milage on the tundra and I keep all my accessory. This is a realy good freind we grew-up together and he now owns the dealer. I am not sure what to do? I realy like my tacoma but is a bit small for towing my trailler. Not sure what to do!

    If its an even trade go for it. When I bought my tacoma in 2006 they were offering me a tundra for less but I didnt like the body style then. But I do really like the new tundras.

    Ehh...Doc- Sounds like you answered your own question. It the Taco is having trouble with the trailer and you need to two the trailer...you need something bigger. If you rae happy with the Taco...then staying with Toyota is a good call...and if it's a straight trade- that's not a bad deal.

    Good luck deciding!!

    I'm jealous.. I need a bit more truck for my trailer as well and have been eyeing a Tundra for a while now. Would love to take some longer trips @ elevation.

    You were a braver soul than I. Mine is 26' and loaded hits about 5500#. Come back and let us know how you like the new Tundra and towing the trailer. I for one am interested to know. Still debating picking up a Tundra and if I can swing it the Tacoma will become a trail truck... unless I end up having to turn it in.:(

    Where you from in N.B? I pull a 24Ft Jayco at about 4500lbs, its a little heavy but for me not worth getting a full size truck for. BTW I think I will pull my trailer out east (Port Elgin/ Amherst) area this summer for holidays

    I am in Moncton, I am going to remove my Air Bags (rear lift) and i will sell them. I realy think they are a must for towing. After installing them it was a totaly different truck and even with that big trailler with no torsion bars the truck was level (very nice) PM me we are going to be camping all summer in Shediac NB
