I gotta does the Tundra handle the pin weight?

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Good luck on that S.O.B. 5er. We had a 2010 318SAB Cougar, never again.

It looks like the 37' 4-slide Cougar 326RDS... If so, it has an empty weight of approx. 10,500/GVWR of 12,300 and empty pin weight of 1,850...

I love the floor plan & a Tundra might be able to tow it home/to a permanent site OK (empty)... However, if you plan to travel far, especially with passengers adding to your payload, then you will need to rethink the Tundra as a safe tow option...

Congratulations on your new 5th wheel. Hope you enjoy it for years to come.

What could go wrong?

Good luck with your Cougar! We had a 2016 TT until we saw the 2016 Cougar 303rls. Have spent over a month in it and think it may be the best one owned in the past 4 decades.

Took it from NC to FL on the maiden voyage. Gotta love a 5er for towing.

Others have only alluded to it but are you aware that you are way surpassing all your tow and weight limits. I am not the weight police but with nothing but batteries, hitch and full propane and the dry pin weight according to specs from Toyota you will be over your payload and more importantly the rear axle limit by roughly 500# before even adding family to the truck or anything to the trailer and those numbers will increase even more. Also the tow rating of the Tundra is right about 10000# and once you load the trailer and your family( they count against your tow capacity ) you stand to be more than 2000# over that rating. Loaded to go payload stands to be 1300# over and rear axle maybe 1200#. Whoever sold you this trailer to tow should be charged with a criminal act for jeopardizing your family and others on the road. I have hauled heavy and towed heavy but only short distances. Not casting aspersions on the Tundra, I had a T100 with a 6 cylinder and a manual trans that I towed 2300 miles round trip with and it was within all limits. The only reason I got rid of it was to get a truck with more towing and payload capacity. I have a F150 Ecoboost Max Tow , Heavy Payload and tow a 28 Ft. bumper pull weighing 7800# and am under payload and axle ratings about 400# ready to go and tow ratings by 3400# so to me it is not about Toyota or 1/2 tons it is about capabilities, safety and comfort when towing. You are firmly in 3/4 ton territory and even then you have to watch payloads as not all are equal. My intention was not to harass you but maybe enlighten you if you were not aware of certain facts. If you feel put upon by this reply I apologize in advance and wish safe travels and much enjoyment with your new trailer.
