Maximum payload total is right at 1500lbs for these trucks.

Passengers+gear+WD hitch weight+ trailer tongue weight (loaded) = Payload

This is true with most 1/2 ton trucks. I do not find it to be an issue. We (2 of us) normally travel with only our dog and the necessary supplies.

Love driving my Tundra

2013 Tundra 4x4 towing 2013 27' FC drives wonderfully. Avg. 11 mpg towing 60-65mph cross country. Go for it!

BicycleStream, Great to hear. Have you done anything to the suspension, what tires are you running on the Tundra.

I upgraded the wheels and tires more for look than anything else.

Size LT 275/70 R18

Suspension is completely stock and using an Equalizer hitch.

Also, forgot to mention that we got the double cab version so we had the longer bed for storing all the toys.

My wheels/tires/suspension is completely stock 20" wheels- which I think are a detriment- i think a smaller, narrower wheels and tires with a taller, softer sidewall would ride better.
I, too, use an Equal-i-zer with 1000# bars.

We own an 08 4x4 Tundra TRD Double Cab and tow a 23 FB with it. I would recommend paying very close attention to max payload of the model you are looking at. This will be your limiting factor. Our tongue weight is approx 785 lbs without water and we usually have quite a bit of gear in the bed including 2 honda generators, chairs, toys and a full tank of gas. If you also carry passengers, you might be close to or over your payload capacity. Any accessories mounted to your truck add to payload.

We love our Tundra but you should pay attention to this as you choose your TV.

Good luck!
