I have a 2015 Silverado LTZ double cab with towing package. 5.4l, rated tow 9200lbs. I towed my XLR 29hfs with my Yamaha vstar 1300 and my wife's Suzuki Bergstrom 400 in the back from Atlanta, Ga to OKC and back through horrible thunderstorm. No problems. Rides and tows fine if you have the weight distribution hitch set up right.

well you're well over weight also , off to the weight police and into the poky with you . we can't have this kind of stuff getting around . it makes life tough for those of us that follow the weight rules . . on another note you really are over weight , and that 5.4 with the 29 in tow must be a real dog . just saying

Yes Yes All in good fun!
I like to Rib the Ford Guys!

All kidding aside that TT pulls really nice with the Tacoma...
I think the key is the Husky Centerline WDH system..
Just amazing how stable...
Prodigy P2 BC dialed in very smooth concise braking...
North Bound & Down Loaded Up & Camping!!

I opened a thread since I didn't want to jump this thread, I just didn't get many responses so will ask kindly about my concern. I tow easily with a wdh and trans cooler gauge shows low temps, engine temps low, no swaying - so all seems fine but today I weighed my tv and tt and found that I am maxing out just under 12k lbs and my specs state total gross towing capacity is 11k / 12k. Should I be concerned ? Or go with it?
