One question about the Tacoma. Did you modify the rear suspension other than using the weight distribution hitch?

No, I did nothing to the Tacoma other than install the hitch and attach the towing mirrors. The Tacoma came equipped from the factory with a trailer towing package and 4x4. I'm not sure if this includes a beefier suspension; it might.

Thanks for the reply. My Tacoma has the factory tow package, so it should be ok.

I swear, it pulls like a dream-- very stable and maneuverable. I found myself zipping through Portland traffic, watching BMWs scatter like chickens. Heh.

Thanks, Myron. I'd rather write than clean my house, but I've put that off long enough. Some Florida bugs decided to live here while I was gone. Bugs attract frogs, and frogs attract snakes, so I'd better get with it..
