Will my Toyota Tundra tow it?

I'm sorry to all the veterans of both trailering and forums, for another one of these threads.

I have a 2002 Toyota Tundra, 4.7 liter V8. Max towing capacity is 7,100 pounds.

I'm interested in the Micro Lite 23LB with a GVWR of 4718 lbs.

Will my Tundra be able to tow it decently? Thanks in advance!

I had 02 DC with 4,7 and a TT with dry weight of 4400. Guess around 5200 loaded. Was OK on flat ground with no head wind. High head wind in new Mexico one trip held me down to 40 mph max for a couple hours. Also lots of sway when big this or buses passed. Even with anti sway bar.

Do you think with a Hensley hitch it would be a lot more manageable?

I think a Hensley would be over kill. That is a light trailer and only 23 feet. Something like the fastway E2 or the equalizer 4 way would work.

The 23lb has a dry weight of 3850lbs. Your truck will pull it with ease. Get the original 4 way equalizer distribution hitch with built in sway control and you'll be good to go. Keep the overdrive button off.

I just pulled mine 600 miles round trip across the Mackinaw bridge with my Chevy Traverse with no problems at all. Love it!

Yes the Hensley hitch will fix the problem. They have the Hensley cub for small trailers. 25 feet max and 5000 pounds Was 1200 when I bought mine. Not sure on the price now. Great hitch.
