Toyota Tundra V-8

I'm towing with a 2003 Toyota "Tundra" pick-up with automatic and had no trouble with a '68 22 Land yacht.

Thinking about moving up to 25-28 ft Classic. Anybody have any real experience with this combo.

I know a 3/4 ton pick-up with diesel etc. would be better, but that's a little much to run around town with 95% of the time when I'm not towing. Fog

The 3/4 or 1 ton new generation Dodge Quadcab shortbeds with single rear wheels are simply great for running around empty. I get over 21 mpg going to work and back empty. Steady stop and go will drop me back to 18 mpg. The turning radius is wonderful. I can u-turn in a much shorter space than with our Cad Deville road car. The fold flat steel loading floor in the back seat makes picking up groceries a breeze and once you get used to the view down the road from a little higher up, you never want to go back to what now feels like riding in a little go-cart. Now, when I ride in a car, I feel like my feet are going to get wet driving through mud puddles in the rain.
