Hello to all,
I am interested in talking with someone that has towed a TT using their tundra. I am doing so at this time. My setup is a 2002 SR5 Access Cab 4.7 liter V-8, automatic trans, Toyota's tow package and the TRD OffRoad package. I use a reese load equalizing hitch and a pair of duo cam<sp? anti-sway brackets along with a electric brake kit installed in the tundra. I am towing a 27 Prowler by Fleetwood. I am only towing in Florida and we don't have hills let alone any mountains of course. So far we have only done one trip and that was a total of 125 miles. It was on both interstate hwy and two lane state hwys. At 55-60 mph it seemed to be no problems with control and all temps and guages were normal. If you have any experience towing with the tundra I would really appreciate any tips or advice (other than get a bigger truck )you care to share.
Thanks in advance for any advice,
Gary Kellems

I don't have the requested experience, but sure wanted to give you a belated welcome. That was either a awfully fun trip or you just registered on this site and then didn't post for a while.
At either rate, we all look forward to hearing more from you and about your rig,
Mike
