Tacoma as tow vehicle

We tow a 4700 lb microlite 22ft w/gmc 5.3l. Gmc specs. Say max 9600. Would never go above 6000 lbs or around 62% of max.. Whatever your tacoma tow max capacity is , take 60 to 65% for save and enjoyable towing. Just me opinion.

I used to tow a 4200lb dry weight coachmen with my Tacoma. I had zero problems with power and always felt comfortable with towing it. However while towing this past summer I found my transmission temperature get above 230F. That is juts way to hot and I was going to kill the transmission. I have since upgraded to a RAM 1500. Long story short... Just because you have the power doesn't mean the transmission can handle it.

We pull a 19ft Hybrid with a 2004 4Runner tow rating is 5k lbs and after we load its about 3300-3500 and pulls great. I would not want anything that weighs more than that gas mileage is about 10 mpg.
