Tacoma TV for 2306?

We have a 06 Jeep Wrangler LJ with 4.0 to pull our 3200# dry Rockwood 1905. Does good for local. Take top off and have fun. Upgraded wife's edge (no tow) to a 2011 durango crew with 5.7 v8 hemi with tow package for long trips. I'm sure it will do good. You will know real fast what your Tacoma can do and be safe. We know jeep limits and stay close. Have fun

We went from a popup to a 2306 and couldn't be more pleased. We tow with a 4.7 v8 4runner which is an extremely strong motor for that size vehicle."wish they put them in the tacomas and I'd own one." It does just fine for us except intestate travel cause of short wheel base and light vehicle. I also tow it with 5.2 dodge ram and it is better on interstate but on mountain roads prefer the 4runner. Expect your fuel to drop below 10mpg. good luck on your camper search

I agree with Martingale. We had a 2007 Tacoma pulling our 5200# (loaded) Roo 23SS with a 600# tongue weight. It worked just OK. Hills were a problem and we were at max. payload with just me and 1 DS in it when we took it to the CAT scales.

Give it a try but I suspect you'll need to upgrade to a 1/2 ton like I did.

I'm new to RVIng but have a 2008 taco prerunner and have had no problem pulling my Shamrock 233s hybrid (4500 lbs unloaded). No mountain hauling so far but hills have not been any trouble. However, I do see a Tundra or Silverado in my future.

Sounds hardly fine when driving straight on a 4 lane highway isn't going well....
