Tundra

Just FYI for 2006 Toyota Tundra w/4.7 V8 owners. I have that vehicle and used it to tow our new Flagstaff 26 RLS on our maiden voyage. Although the trip was not that far, approx. 70 each way........the truck pulled just fine!

The trip did include both rural roads and Interstate (approx. 40 miles on the Interstate each way). I drove at 65 mph with a RPM of 2800. In drive w/ OD off. Again no problems and things felt smooth.

We use the Equalizer brand hitch and the prodigy brake control.

We are in Florida (flat lands) But the truck / trailer combo worked well together!

Just wanted to share our experience with those who might be looking at similiar TV / TT combos!

Do these truck have a transmission temp gauge or a trans cooler if not may be a good idea to add these to your truck

My 07 Tundra 4X4 DC LB 5.7V8 W/ARE MX Cap

My 07 Tundra had no problem towing the new Surveyor which weighs around 5 to 6k [I haven't weighed it yet]. Towed from Hamilton Ohio through KY and TN back to Charlotte area of NC. Averaged 10.5 MPG. Power was never an issue. I use 5th gear while towing [s-mode] - easy to downshift going down old fort mountain.
I've towed with a F350 4X4 Lariat 6.0 and the Tundra tows as well or better, rides much better, uses lower price fuel and gets equal MPGs. The Tundra got 19 MPG loaded with camping gear on the trip up to Ohio.

I'm getting ready to tow my 2010 Rockwood 2701SS for the first time this weekend with my 2004 Tundra Double Cab. I wish I had the 5.4 instead of the 4.7, but I think it will do just fine. We will have a few long, steep grades along the way that my be a little tough, but we'll just take it slow and easy! Steeljag appears to have a similar situp (with similar weight trailer), so reading that you didn't have any problems makes me feel much better!

I use my 2004 Tundra with 4.7 engine to tow my 2006 2701SS and it does a GREAT job...Same set-up...in drive with OD off. I routinely pull it through the mountains of WV and Western Virginia (near Luray) with no problem whatsoever.

Vehicle rated at 7300 pounds, trailer fully loaded (but dry) at 6900. No sweat.
