Love our Tundra

I have a 2010 Crewmax and I am pulling a 35' Wildwood that weighs 8200 empty with no problems at all. Tundra has TONS of power and is very reliable. I would recommend it for sure!

I am not concerned about pulling the trailer, I am well below max and under GCVW. The concern I have is the low payload for the tundra. My 2004 f150 squats about 2 inches with a WDH. I am also going to look at a 2011 f150 5.0 with big gears.

I am pulling a Solaire 317 BHSK with a 09 Tundra 5.7 Supercharged on Michellin LTX/2's. The trailer is 35ft, no "squat", but "squat" can really depend on your WDH setup. I have pulled through the Appalachian mountains with this truck with no issues. I do not have a three thousand dollar pro-prode hitch either. I have the EZ lift system that was thrown in on the purchase with two friction sway bars. I do not get pushed around on stock shocks going down the highway. The truck and trailer are comfortable in a "sweet spot" at 65 mph. Biggest problem I have is probably what semi drivers go through every day, cars and trucks flying by just to get in front of you to stop short. Other than that, my setup is awesome.

Oh yeah...its awesome to hear that SC whining upon take off...it does get some looks...

IMHO..Change to Tundra=good idea

Wow!....as I read through this thread, I think at least some of you guys are "Nascar" certified drivers...., I pull our Rockwood 30' with a 2014 Tundra 4.6L double/cab (not crew/max) & it seems to do just fine.....but then again maybe I am like the Bumble/Bee that isn't supposed to be able to fly.....I simply don't know any better...

I used to tow a 2014 Roo 23SS With a 2014 Tundra Double cab 5.7L 4x4. It did a great job but mileage when towing was about 9 - 10 mpg.

Upgraded to a larger TT and it was out of it's class. Towed (power was never a problem) and stopped fine but the tail was wagging the dog. Had to move to a larger/heavier TV.

Check your cargo capacity and make sure you have plenty left once hooked up. if you are near your limits and your trailer out weighs your TV, which I think it will, towing will be somewhat unpleasant, at least it was for me.

My 2009 Tundra had just shy of 200K when I traded it in for a 2015 Tundra. They both have pulled my 5th wheel just fine.

I have an 09 tundra pulling 30' trailer. Pulls good though bad sections of interstate I get some bounce, installed airbags and still trying to find right air pressure combination.

When pulling the 5er I have 60lbs in the rear tires of my "E" series Firestone Transforce HT's and run 20lbs in my Firestone air rides. No sag and works great. When not towing I have 46lbs in all the tires but I increase to 60lbs in the rear when pulling the 5th wheel.

on a side note, Toyota just announced that all supercharger kits are being discontinued, and will only be available until current stock is exhausted. if you want one, get it now!
