Payload is 1420 lbs. for a 2014 5.7 Tundra 4x4 TRD Limited. It will pull a lot without much trouble however I fight payload with a 5er weighing 6345 lbs. dry 1160 lbs. hitch. May have to throw out the spare tire and change to a non-slider hitch on my next trip. DW and DD gotta ride in truck.

I don't know where you get that there is no stated payload. Like any truck payload depends on configuration and options. 4x4 crew max will be lower than a 2wd regular cab.

Loose pull has not been my experience, but I Load and pull within specs. Lots of people like too push the limits on 1/2 ton trucks and then complain if they have issues.

The Toyota 5.7l has hemispherical heads, but so what? There are tons of other engines out there that do to. It is just a design, it doesn't make it some hot rod engine out of a GTX.

Check owners manual section 9 vehicle capacity weight. Page 503 for double cab.

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 4 X 4 Crew Can 5.9 liter engine. It struggles to tow a 6900 Dry Weight Four Winds TT and uses more gas than I like to talk about. My 2008 F- 450 TD Crew Cab Lariat 4 X 4 get better mileage and will pull a house off its foundation. I would never go below a Ford F-250, a Dodge 2500 or a Chevy or GMC 2500 when towing a decent size RV. Just saying.

I went to scales and used real numbers and manufacturer spec numbers to see how well my truck was working with my 5th wheel. I thought with a TT hitch weight of 964 lbs. I was golden but I was very wrong. There are many weight calculators available on the web but I like the green good, red bad indications this one gives. Seriously payload weight is a problem that can be dealt with but you gotta watch everything placed in TV and/or TT when using a 1/2 ton truck. I really like my Tundra but for what it's worth I plan to go heavier and probably diesel next time so payload and weight will be minor calculation for piece of mind.

Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Hemi towing a 2008 Surveyor 303 with approximately 8,000 lbs. loaded trailer weight and un measured full pickup bed. I use an Equalizer weight distribution system and the Hemi pulls my trailer effortlessly with great pickup and pull away speed when needed. She sails down the interstate effortlessly and I have to use cruise control to make sure I am not speeding. I try to keep my speed around 60MPH. I haven't been to the Rockies yet, but have had no challenges in the eastern mountains and Adirondacks/Vt areas. I love my 2010 Dodge Ram and would buy another one.

As an owner of an '11 crew max and pulling 7500 loaded with 950 tongue weight, camper shell, DW & DD plus friends and dogs and beer I am at or over my payload. Clifford pulls like a champ - only thing that knocked the wind out of him was 15% grade on way to big bear. DW approved power upgrades after that trip. I added sumo springs in the rear and helps the ride tremendously. I am I all over the road-nope. But I am running e rated tires and that makes a big difference.

So, in answer to your question, yes Tundra can pull it. How much cargo you carry is up to you. But let us look at all the tundra owners that agree that they are at or past the black and white numbers and see why they are doing it. They have the common sense to not be an ass and knowing where their limits are. Hell- I second guess myself and my setup every trip but it also helps me not to let my guard down and let something stupid happen.

Totally agree. It will pull and pull it very very well. I'm not over on TT GVWR however I'm finally down to only about 275 lbs over TV GVWR. That being said my GAWR of rear is 190 lbs below max manufacture specs. I also have Firestone air ride with split lines and Firestone Transforce HT "E" series tires but these don't increase the truck manufacture specs. It's a truly a fantastic truck but unfortunately I have to accept that it does have limits.

I have no problem with road stability. I have 10 ply tires on truck and trailer. I have Firestone Ride Rite air bags on truck. It handles exceptionally well, even in strong winds.
