Been towing with Tundra for seven years, love it. Towed a 31 then a 32 bunk house so I'm believing the Roo should be a dream.

Have never owned a better truck! Approaching 20,000 towing miles now since March 2012 and am still getting impressed with the overall performance through a huge range of elevations and temperatures.

Have only done short pulls with my current setup, less than 50 miles each way. Headed to sequioas in a few weeks so that will be our big test- 400 miles. I think my biggest problem will be navigating a busy gas station. Will be bringing extra gas cans as first 100 miles will be 5k foot climbs then back to sea level so am expecting Clifford to be a thirsty boy.

Clifford will be thirsty when towing. Our milage is cut in half when towing, the trailer out weighs the truck what would anybody expect. I get an honest 9 - 10 MPG @ 60 MPH.

Towing with a Tundra is great. I have driven a Tundra for 20 years and owned three different ones.

However, I am really hoping they make an HD version to bump up the payload capacity as that is the great limiter on towing with this truck. If you have 2 adults and 2 kids the available payload is pretty low.

For a truck that is rated to tow 10,000 lbs. you can really only tow ~6.000 due to the payload limit.

What is the typical payload capacity of the new Tundra? I may have to consider the Tundra next go round.

Don't know about the new ones, would depend allot on body style and added equipment.

In 2010 we pulled our Fleetwood Niagara popup with our 5.7L Tundra from GA to Vegas, via many National Parks including the Grand Canyon, Zion, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Mesa Verde. We had no problems and expect the same when we get our 23ikss.
