Even though replacing my Tundra is several years away, I am always looking for new info on trucks.
It's a very nice ride and pulls our little camper like it's not even there. In fact I had to rearrange things in the camper a bit because the added acceleration of the new truck was throwing things around. When I popped the top it looked like a disaster area
The Tacoma didn't have the oomph to do that.
Mileage hasn't suffered too much. I went from about 15mpg in the Tacoma to 13mpg in the Ford. It's worth it for the added comfort and towing capabilities. We were up against, or over, the max hitch weight of the Tacoma when we put motorcycles on the toy deck of our camper.
