Going to buy a solaire190x tomorrow

I have a 256 hw pop-up tomorrow i am going to trade it in and buy 190x solaire. I am sick of having to crank up the camper to get stuff in and out and not so much to set up. I did like my pop-up until i had some problems with the lift system this year So i decided to buy a hybrid.

That hybrid about twice as heavy as your popup (dry weight's ~4600lbs, GVWR=7620lbs), plus you'll now have a large sail to pull through the air. You don't say what you're towing with, but I hope your tow vehicle is up to the task. You're over the towing capacity of my Silverado.

Yeah. Pop ups are nice to tow. They sit within your TV slipstream.

TT's are a whole lot bigger.

With a dry weight of 4600, you really should look at 1500series. The Tacoma won't be the best choice.

Had a Tacoma. Great little truck but traded for a RAM 1500 when I got my Roo . Check the specs. Tacoma is a little light on towing, A Tundra would do it but doesn't come with factory trailer brake . The 8 SPd tranny on the RAM gets me real close to the mpg I was getting with the much smaller Tacoma and I have the big hemi 5.7 gasser
