Hi: claude... With the 5.0TA we lost about 1-1 1/2 mpg from towing the single axle 5.0. Alf

With the Tundra towing a 5.0 you need to be careful with payload capacity. My 2015 Tundra Crewmax SR5 4wd w/5.7 has a payload capacity of only 1,360 lbs (sticker in drivers door jamb). Higher end trims will have more options thus a lower capacity. That number accounts for all truck occupants, stuff and the kingpin weight of the trailer. The kingpin weight will likely account for more that half of that capacity so be mindful of how many people and how much stuff you'll carry in the truck (cab & bed).

Otherwise, with 401 lb. ft. of torque you'll likely not notice much the trailer is back there. But peak torque is at 3,600 rpm so if you're going up a steep grade don't be afraid to wind up the motor. It's not a diesel nor a pushrod gas motor so rpm's are not the enemy.

Those numbers are almost identical to my Ram Hemi, it will pull anything but can carry nothing.
