please help the newbie

All;

Trying to determine if anyone is successfully towing a 16-22 ft airstream with a 4wd, 6 cylinder toyata tacoma???

Can you tell me what trailer you are pulling and what trailer limit you would recommend in length and weight for the tacoma? I know it says 6500 lbs for the truck but that seems optimistic.

Thanks in advance for the value of your actual experience

Bill

You seem to be conservative in your expectations- that’s fine. Do you expect to be driving mountain passes? Load your trailer to the gunwales?
I would expect you’ll be comfortable if you keep the loaded trailer weight to 5000 #, give or take, WITH an appropriate hitch. If you push it... well, Tundras are nice too.
Also consider the tongue weight, your truck’s payload, and GCWR.
Also consider how much togetherness you and your traveling companion can handle.
There are tons of posts on this subject. Fine tune your browsing skills!
