Hi, generally you should see about 15% or so off of list on Airstreams. The 2020’s are already on the lot, so you may want to look around. Check out inventory at the dealers online and don’t be afraid to travel for a deal.
IMHO the Tundra is the best 1/2 ton truck on the market because of reliability. It has ample power to pull the 25’ anywhere. However, you really need to watch the payload rating. Look at the sticker on the driver door post.
I had a Tundra Crewmax and loved it. However the payload was 1300#. Subtract off the 800# hitch weight of our ole 23D and the 250# weight of the topper and there’s not much left for people and stuff.
Depending on the Tundra model you have you may have more payload capacity. If you travel light you might be ok. You need to look at the numbers for your situation and decide.
We were marginal in our Tundra with the 23D according to the numbers, but it always pulled well, stopped well and was very stable...even through the mountains. Now that we’re retired we plan on taking longer trips (caravans) and carrying more stuff so we upgraded to a 28’ FC and an F350 Diesel.
If Toyota made a 3/4 or 1 ton truck, I probably would have bought that.
BTW so far I love the F350 Diesel, but it’s new. If it’s reliability is anywhere near the Tundra, it will be a home run.
FWIW that’s our experience. I hope it helps.
