tacoma pulling a 20 ft bambi or caravelle????

All; I've searched through the past posts and still cant find specific examples of owners pulling a 19-20 ft Bambi or Caravelle with a double cab 4wd tacoma TV.

Surely someone out there is doing it or has past experience on how or why to do it or not do it.

Seems like the numbers work but I really wanted to hear personal examples of success or failure.

New Tacoma on order, new AS planned for march 2021.

Can you give me the benefit of your experience please?

Thanks in advance.

Towing with a Tacoma

We towed a Flying Cloud 20 with a 2016 Tacoma double cab itís the tow package. The issues we found were lack of power and poor fuel economy, along with some concerns about the brakes on the Tacoma (drums in the rear..). Having said that, the Tacoma did get the job done. although taking your time was the order of the day.

I tow a 2007 International CCD 22 footer dual axle with a 2012 Crew Cab short bed 4WD Tacoma. I use a ProPride hitch system, and a bit of patience on the long climbs. Stopping has never been an issue with the aftermarket trailer brake controller set properly. The rig gets an average of 10-14MPG depending on terrain.

Sure, I would love the extra horsepower of a Tundra, but thatís a late next year purchase...besides, Iím semi-retired, and never in a huge hurry. We have to stop to walk the dogs and take walk-around and potty breaks anyway.
