2022Tundra

Is anyone driving a 2022 Tundra twin turbo pulling a 25í AS?
How do you like it and what is the payload rating?

I have a 2022 Tundra! Just got it and going to take it out next week with our 22FB.

Our payload sticker says 1,390 lbs. Sort of on the low side but our 22FB puts 500 lbs on the tongue so we still have a lot of room left over. I am sure that a 25 footer will put a fair bit more pounds on the tongue. If you opted for all the Tundra bells and whistles, you might find the payload even lower than ours.

Ours is a Limited Crewmax TRD with extended box (6.5' box). So the extra length and trim package cuts into the payload. I am sure that a base or lower trim model will have a payload closer to 1,950 lbs.

The Tundra has a pretty stiff ride, I have had Rams and F150's and this is certainly one of the stiffest rides I have experienced. I think the TRD option is the cause of that. I am hoping that our test tow next week will smooth out the ride a bit with the added weight.

The first thing I did was put a Diamondback box cover on it and Thule racks for the kayaks and bikes.

Thule

Hi, which racks did you get? Iíve been looking for racks for kayak/canoe and the Thule site says nothing fits a 2022 or 2023 tundraÖ thanks

The rack is a Tracrac Tracone. It is possible that Thule says it wont fit because of the tie down rails in the box. The way I installed it was on top of my Diamondback cover. I added aluminum shims and bolted it to the cover. I plan on adding some horizontal bars so I can mount my bike carriers that are the up right style to sit towards the sides below the kayaks.

The cover makes any truck universal.

I will post some photos soon.

I seriously doubt this will be true.

Would love to see a door sticker that shows this payload on ANY Tundra, regardless of trim.

And...would definitely love to see a Tundra with this much payload, because I would be fixing to get one as my next tow vehicle.

I think that the advertisement for the new Tundra listed that as a number. Perhaps you need to take out the seats and sit on some plastic milk crates.

This is what I clipped from the internet: What is the 2022 Tundra's payload capacity? The max payload capacity of the 2022 Toyota Tundra is 1,940 lbs, or 880 kg. By calculating the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) less the curb weight of your Tundra, you will be able to determine its maximum payload capacity


I had a look at the owners manual and it looks like the highest payload comes with the 2WD Double Cad long box at 1,580 lbs.

The lowest is Crewmax short box at 1,310 lbs. I am not too sure which trim this is but I expect that it is fully loaded.

What size is the fuel tank on the 2022 Tundra? We got a trail edition 2021 with a 38 gallon tank (vs their standard size 26).

This is what I got from the manual:

Standard fuel tank:
22.5 gal. (85.0 L, 18.7 Imp.gal.)
Large fuel tank:
32.2 gal. (122.0 L, 26.8 Imp.gal.)

I think ours is a Large tank. I havenít filled it yet (still working on the tank that the dealer gave us).

Great looking and reliable truck; just not for towing a 25' or larger AS...payload sucks on the Tundra, typically...also mileage has been an issue. You will find some folks don't care about those issues I am sure. Suggest looking at the Ford or GM products if your seriously considering a 25' or larger AS, and plan to carry any payload, including kayaks or canoes..assuming payload is important.

I was hesitant with the Tundra but the new V6 is reported to get the same mileage as my Ridgeline. I think it is similar to the Ford Ecoboost for mileage.

I think the low payload is a miss for Toyota. With 11,000 lbs of towing, you would think that a trailer could put 1,100 lbs on the tongue and that leaves no room for stuff or passengers other than the driver.

Our little 22FB has a tongue weight of 500 lbs so in our case, this works. If others are pulling a larger trailer, they would need to use the cargo capacity in the trailer to keep the tongue weight at >10% of the trailer weight. It can be done but it will require some thought on loading to get the numbers to work out.

2022 Tundra Hybrid Capstone, East to the Eisenhower tunnel, 8 miles, 7% grade to an elevation of 11,000+ feet towing a 10,000-pound skid steer easily maintaining the speed limit. I have had a few older diesels that would not pull 10,000 up the hill like this. The downhill brake applications using cruise was 11. I always use manual and use a much lower gear keeping the speed at 45 which would probably only need half the brake applications. Would a newer diesel need as many brake applications no, but this is such a minor issue to me when it comes to selecting a tow vehicle and most of my towing is round trip through CO high passes with a 2021 GMC 1500 6.2 gas.

The 2022 Tundra towing an Airstream, especially a 25', would be a piece of cake and a very comfortable one at that.

You missed my point; great truck; payload however on the Tundras are typically lower than 1500lbs...a 25' tongue weight will be around 1000+ in most casses. Unless your not carrying over 350 lbs in passengers and 150 in cargo, and have an actual "payload" rating of 1500, not recommended if you want to stay inside mfg. specifications. Nice truck, still.

WDH applied weight will give you another 300 pounds of payload capacity which is plenty for most. I know it is for me. 1,560-pound payload and my CAT confirmed WDH weight applied to the truck is 860 pounds. Leaves 700 pounds for my use. Static tongue weight is 1,150 including, a 400A Battleborn system and Onan generator up front and the new Grand Lounge upgrade.

What kind of mileage are you seeing while towing your 22FB?

Curious how it would tow the Classic? The AS rep at the Hershey show said to consider the 2022 Tundra.

Here are the specs. It looks like it would be a great candidate. When my 2021 GMC 1500 6.2 gas warranty is nearing the end I would seriously consider this or the Sequoia. Would lean toward the Sequoia for my 25'.
