Earlier premise?

OP asked for advice on Tundra. Advice offered.

I could have worded my first post a bit better - I didn't mean that this thread had deviated from what the OP asked. But I wanted to question the reason he started this thread.

The OP got earlier advice that his Tacoma wasn't big enough to tow a 19' Bambi. (I looked at the OP's old threads from when he started looking in 2009.) I disgree with that advice.

If he WANTS a Tundra, cool. I've driven them - they have fabulous drivetrains. But if he wants to keep his Tacoma, he doesn't need a Tundra.

No beef

I never said he NEEDED a Tundra. In the current thread he was asking about Tundras. I have one and thought I would share my recent experience. I just thought that I had not deviated from his original question as posed on this most recent thread. My apologies if I intimated that there was a beef.

2010 5.7L V8 Tundra. 1984 Sovereign trailer. We love them both. But there are lots of good TV's, sometimes it is just a matter of personal taste. This one is is quiet, comfy, and in my not so humble opinion, just looks darn good (at least at the beginning of trips, before the bugs and dust)

According to this thread, he has a V6 Prerunner. Depends on the year, but with the tow package, that truck tows either 5000 lbs or 6400 lbs for the newer ones.

I would imagine that the Tundra would tow the OP's trailer without a problem, as would his Tacoma and a whole raft of other vehicles, including SUVs and Minivans. That's the thing that the Airstream is so good at, giving you a choice, because they are the best towing trailers you can buy.
