My toy hauler weighs 7000 all loaded and running in 4th gear at 2900 Rpms my tundra just cruises right along even with slight hills. On steeper hills I will down shift to 3rd and run between 3500-4000 Rpms all day no over heating with plenty of power. Since everyone has said yes ford is a better choice. I would say no it is not because the tundra is just as capable as the f150.

ok, I was staying out of this until now. My 5.7 Tundra pulls my 8k+ trailer just fine. I've been thru Colorado Rockies and up and down the the east coast mountains. On average pulling the camper 2800 miles a year, for the past 6 years. I've never had a bit of trouble. 77k miles, no oil burn, ok gas mileage. Great truck. To compare, I had an F150, and drive them at work, but none with EB.

Bottom line...If I started over, I'd do it all again. With one exception, if I was going "full timed" with a large 5ver, I would make it a diesel.
