Toyota tundra

Sorry to ask such a lengthy question, but I know absolutely nothing in the areas of towing capacity! We have a 2010 Toyota Tundra 5.7 v8 truck and pull our 2013 greywolf 26dbh ... question is, I'm looking to surprise my husband with a golf cart for his birthday but I have absolutely No idea What our truck is capable of carrying! I've tried to look online but the numbers are making me crazy! The two carts I'm looking at are 1322 & 1050 curb weights. Any and all help.is greatly appreciated!!

Looks to me like with either of those carts the Tundra will be over payload by a pretty good amount. I don't know much about the Greywolf, if it's a toy hauler you might be OK. Anything you add to the truck will take away from it's payload, look at the sticker on the drivers door pillar, thats a good number to go by. Also keep a close eye on the rear axel weight rating but you will exceed your payload before the grawr.

you need to look at the inside sticker, on the driver's side door.
it will give the payload amount of the truck, which is the max weight the truck can carry.

i agree that both carts are over the Tundra's capacity, if you are planning to also tow the trailer.

Thank you guys so much Glen your help, I'm going to look into all of this! The length isn't the problem, we'll just have to take the tailgate off, bit it will definitely fit, the weight will be the problem.

you still haven't stated whether you want to just carry the cart with the Tundra or you want it to carry the cart AND tow the trailer at the same time.

if it's the second case, the answer is probably no, since the Grey Wolf's loaded tongue weight will be close to 1000lbs.
not enough payload left over for a 1000lbs. golf cart, passengers and cargo.

Yes, we'll be pulling the camper and putting the golf cart in the bed of the truck.

If you are then you'll be way over payload on the Tundra.

Yep, not workable I think.

The sticker inside of the door of the tundra says not to exceed 1380 of cargo/passengers. Do you think the golf cart idea in general is not gonna happen or What is a good weight that would safely work? I know those carts are on the heavier side because of modifications.
