THIS would be your best solution.

Thanks for breaking it down for me! I think pulling it with our other vehicle would work for our closer trips....I just hopefully that this doesn't give him a valid reason to trade in the Tundra 😉 thanks again, I really appreciate all of the help! He's gonna think I'm a pro When I start spouting off all of this new knowledge I have haha

Think you're catching on to our plan (those of us who say buy the GC) because we know your hubby will say we need a bigger truck...and he'll be even happier to have a new GC and go truck shopping! LOL

I tow a 41 ft wildwood 402qbq with a Toyota Tundra 4.6l fully loaded with gear and a yahama grizzly 450 in the back and it does fine at 65 mph so anyone saying that the tundra can't pull over 8200 lbs is full of it fully loaded is 14000 lbs on trailer and 8000 lbs on truck

I hope you're kidding. Can it pull it? Sure. Is it safe or responsible? Not at all. You'd be almost 4000 pounds overweight if you had the 5.7. The 4.6 is probably much less, I'm not sure what the tow rating is for that configuration (8200?). You're putting yourself and everyone on the road in danger and if you ever got into an accident pulling that kind of weight with a Tundra you'd probably be charged with negligent property damage/injury/death and open yourself up to civil litigation.

I'm sure the OP already sorted out her issue since the thread is from June. Once again in this forum I am terrified at the flippant attitude regarding overloads. I get that it may be not worth it to start truck shopping if you're within a couple hundred pounds total but 4-6000 pounds overweight? Really?

Please post your next years travel plans on here. Most of us want to be sure we're not on the same roads you travel on!

Wow. I have a tundra with the 5.7. Not sure what you're thinking but I would never in my wildest dreams do something like this. And think I'm gonna have to throw out the BS flag at the same time.

Bored? Decided to do some trolling to kill time?
