    Do you have tow package?

    Most travel trailers re going to be too heavy for the Tacoma. You can only pull like 6500lbs with tow package and proper set up.

    Unless you're looking at a small Scamp type 5th wheel, the Tacoma is not a big enough truck for a 5th Wheel or gooseneck trailer. You will very quickly overload the truck.

    ^^Woe! That doesn't seem like a good idea. Wonder how much that weighs?

    I see a older (2000-2004) Nissan around town with a small 5th wheel/trailer setup. It looks like it handles it prettily well but the trailer is half the size, maybe a little larger than your average 5th wheel.
