    Welcome from Kuwait! How much does the camper weigh? Looks like it might be a bit much for the Tacoma. If it isn't, I may have to pick one up.

    Welcome aboard! Whats the blue stuff?!

    Camper isn't too heavy - looks like the tongue weight is a bit high though. Easy to adjust by shifting some weight to the rear of the trailers axles. If you can get the tongue weight somewhere between 100-200 lbs you should be set!

    Hey guys, thanks for all the welcomes!

    The blue stuff is just paint, but my brother photoshopped a smurf hat into the picture (I can't find his edit), to make it look like I ran over a smurf.

    The camper is a 2013 Jayco 184BH:
    20ft long, sleeps 4 - 5
    Dry weight - 2700lbs
    GVW - 3500lbs
    Hitch weight - 300lbs

    My taco handles it nicely. I have a beefy overkill weight distributing hitch which helps. Unfortunately, the ball doesn't quite drop low enough to keep the trailer nice & level.

    I don't see the smurf hat either, but I approve of running over smurfs. :D
