I'm a truck guy, and it's my only vehicle except for a '74 Toyota FJ40 which hasn't left the garage in about 10 months. I also use the truck independent of towing the trailer for hunting and fishing. I really like the Tacoma, and it tows the trailer just fine.

We have both a 2004 Tundra and a 2013 Highlander. While both could pull our 19' trailer, we love the features of the Tundra (e.g., throwing a bunch of 'stuff' into the back, more tow capability, etc). That said, if we had to choose between them and only keep one as a TV/commute car, the Highlander just might win out.

All that said about my love affair with Tacomas, I've been considering a Tundra. I have a buddy who might be selling his '07 Tundra, 4x4, TRD, Tow Package, camper shell, etc., and the darned thing only has 22,000 miles on it! Immaculately kept. He's waiting to decide if he wants to buy a Highlander.

That new built in back up camera and sway control built in will be really nice . We just got a new Corolla and wish that its back up camera was in our Tacoma.

Nice looking tug, Nadia. Those compact trucks keep getting bigger and bigger. It looks so long. Should tow very well.
