I read the thread and I didnít see this listed but ...... I didnít think you could flat tow a tundra? I have a 2017 and I recall looking it up somewhere and I thought it said you canít flat tow it. I believe it was Toyotaís website. They have a page that shows which of their vehicles can be flat towed and the tundra was a no go .... ?

I agree... buy American... I have had it from these people that drive a foreign car or truck then complain when GM lays-off 4000 workers or Ford lays-off 1000. They don't get it that these reduction in workers affects more down the line... think about it, does this former worker cut back on things like a hair cut or doctor Ö.. meanwhile yes your foreign car or truck might have been built in the USA but the profit goes to the home base of the company say Japan or Germany etc. Years ago I believe GM was forced to put in place a policy that barred foreign cars from their factory parking lot.... talk about biting the hand that feeds you !!!!

Does this mean Ram trucks are out of consideration?

Are you sure?? Pretty sure Toyota Tundra can tow what most F150s on the dealer lot can tow. I think you need the maxtow and/or max payload options in the F150 to tow more than a 5.7 Tundra.

The Sequoia was the best for us

We love the Toyota Sequoia. So luxurious and comfortable to ride. V8 standard, so much storage space. Would not go back to a truck unless i had a 5'er.

2 9 2019 I'm getting ready to tow my 2019 Tundra after towing my 2006 Tundra almost 50k miles w/o a problem. ARE cappers with matching paint on both so I have protection and security for contents unless someone who is not honest comes along.

Got the Expy

I ended up with a 2016 Expedition EL. It's super quiet, but very strong. It's fun to floor it too. I'll have to not do that. That engine will knock your socks off.

Regarding towing a vehicle that the owners manual explains should not be flat towed behind a motor home (as it comes from the factory). This situation is changed by the addition of a driveshaft disconnect provided by Superior Driveshaft. Costs around $1 k for the replacement driveshaft along with the control shifter that functions from inside the cab. As long as the driveshaft is not turning, the tranny stays in park and the key in the ignition. (Start the truck, turn the key off and leave it in the off position; the front steering stays loose so you can tow). Of course you need something like the Blue Ox tow bracket (available) and lights from the RV to the tail ligts of the towed vehicle. I have the auxiliary air brake from my DP to the toad as well so when I brake the RV the toad brakes at the same time proportionately.
Even the Toyota dealer where I bought my truck had never heard of these devices and asked for names for customers who do inquire. Happy Trails.

Congratulations on the new truck! I was really impressed with Ford's build quality and all the engineering that goes into making them quiet when I bought my 2013

Best regards,
Chris

PS to those reading this thread - it started as a discussion about what vehicle to tow with. Someone caused it to take a left turn and people are chiming in about doing Flat-Tow of vehicles.

I use mine with the flat plate on the bottom, and the u-bolt across the top of the stinger. But in my year the hitch sits below the bumper, and you have the hide a hitch version.


Yep, just to tight to fit. The hitch sits high with the hide a hitch.
