You bet, full tow pack, 5.7L. Tow cap of 10,500 lbs. I think I will make good use of the triptronic shift option as well.

Have fun...

We did buy from Minard's, we live right in Weyburn here and it was a natural choice. Picked this unit out at the "Dreamin of Summer" sale 3 weeks ago or so.

We purchased our TT from Minard's at last years Dreamn' of Summer sale. Great folks to deal with.

Which make WDH are they installing for you?

Welcome to the Forum from Dog River. If You ever make it to Dunnet Regional Park at Avonlea, give me a shout. We have a seasonal site there and will be out there most of the summer.

Excellent you are in good shape, I suggest you make sure you have a good brake controller and have it adjusted correctly, my approach is the TT stops itself and doesn't push the TV. The Tundra has one of the best braking systems out there but still make sure the trailer is stopping itself then you have better control in the mountains.

Enjoy

I can't understand why it did not catch on here in the USA. I liked the show do much that I bought all six seasons on dvd. Too bad there are only 6 seasons.
