I have a 2007 Tundra and was towing a Jaco 23B hybrid (4000 lbs) no problem. This past summer I upgraded to a 2009 Sprinter 31 BHS. I was a little worried at first, but knew we would be sticking fairly close to home with it (within a couple hrs.) I had to travel from Nova Scotia to Pittsburgh for it. So returning home with the trailer was about 1200 miles. Anyway the new trailer weighed 8200lbs dry and the truck performed wonderfully. It got a little windy closer to home and I could feel it, But I would have felt that using anything to pull it. We used the trailer all summer and I weighed it full at around 8700lbs (our camping gear no fluids). The truck has the power of a 3/4 tonn, but in a 1/2 tonn body. After returning home I did install the rubber blocks to help with the weight. anyway any questions or comments would love to hear them.
We just purchased a new Forest River Flagstaff 832CLSB travel trailer that I think has put us over on several limits but I have a couple of questions on WD.

Hey y’all! So we tow our 37’ 2018 Highland Ridge Light 312BHS with our V8 5.7L tundra. I bought the tundra years ago with a 3” lift in the front and no lift in the back.
This creates a really bad sag when the trailer is hooked up. I have a HUSKY TS weight distribution hitch/bars. I understand...
I towed my 6x14 trailer with my Ranger on it this weekend. It towed great, my only question is the use of overdrive. In my Titan I had to keep it out of 5th gear so the the transmission did not heat up. I notice that the only way to do that on the Toyota is to do the manual shifting in which...
