    Does any one have experince in maybe towing a 31 ft. travel trailer with a new tacoma/ with the tow package. It has a extra switch on the dash that gives a much lower gears but it does not go so fast. this is the first time i have had a toyota. any thoughts on this?

    yes, put bags under the rear and brake controller box. but i wouldn't go over 20ft...i hauler a 1 ton car trailer with my 01 v6 and it pulls and stops perfectly fine. hauled a jeep few days ago...only problem i had was no bags.

    hey, had a good time with this towing joke. I pull a 21 ft. light travel trailer and it does real good. I also own and drive big trucks, macks etc. so thanks for the comments and i will get on track. This is my first toyota,and i like it very much, catgrader.

    The only thing you have that gives lower gears is if you have a 4x4 and go into 4L.

    Do NOT EVER run 4L or 4H on pavement. It will destroy your transfer case.
