Hello. I had an order in for a new 5.0, but then found a used one nearby, here in Victoria BC. Fortuitously, it was attached to a 2013 Tundra dual-cab 5.7l V8 4x4. So, I purchased both and cancelled my order for new one (my build date was 01/‘22). Really happy with my purchase so far.
ps. I’m new to towing....what does “stickie” mean? I can’t find a glossary.
Hi there congratulations on finding a 5TA. They are few and far between. We have a 2019. The question on weights. Your Payload is the total weight you can put in the truck. Including passengers and cargo. So if your trailer Pin weight is 800 loaded you have 600 more to play with. Inside your trailer there should be a dry weight sticker that shows pin weight. Loaded will be higher depending on where you put stuff in trailer. 1400 is a bit low but OK and the tundra is a good match.
We are in Port Hardy and Love our 5TA. What type of hitch do you have.
Our Tundra came with a "Demco Hitchhiker" hitch which, while capable, is pretty heavy compared to the Andersen hitch we saw at the Factory Showroom last summer. We've only done one short outing for four nights and it really is great! Can't wait to explore more of Vanc Island!
