    Just curious if any of you guys have travel trailers that you pull with your Tacoma. I have a 03 V6 2wd and i heard of guys pulling some of the lighter 21-24 footers. Been kinda browsing around cause i dont know much about them but a bunch of guys at my work have the big toy haulers with deisels and kinda sparked my interest as to see what this truck can handle.

    well the base tacoma can tow 3500 pounds.
    Look at what you can pull and use that.
    if you pull to much and get pulled over and it will not be a fun thing to deal with.

    CHP is stepping up and trying to make as much money for the state as possible.

    What? I don't believe the supercharger gives you anymore towing capacity. It may help for sure though. He's got a first gen anyways.

    1st gen v6 tow package 5000 pounds
    2nd gen v6 tow package 6500 pounds.
