I have a Designer travel trailer to go camping in, but it's not as new or as big as in the picture shown here. However, just wondering what's the largest trailer that I should tow with a Tacoma is.

I love camping. Some of my friends pull trailers with a Toyota Tacoma. If you purchase a 2014 Tacoma you can pull that trailer with it.

I have a 2013 Toyota Tacoma and it does a good job pulling my camper.

For this size of trailer in the picture, I would go with a bigger truck like the Tundra personally.

Yeah, that's a pipe dream! The 2013 Toyota Tacoma, with the FACTORY towing package, has a maximum towing capacity of 6400 lbs.

Technically, if you really wanted to you could tow more weight than that, but you have to think about the whole truck as a total system. SHOULD you do this is another question.

Think about the truck and all it's parts, how they all work together to make the truck work for you as a machine. The Engine, Transmission, Brakes, Suspension, ability to climb hills, ability to descend hills, proper traction, ability to handle the load you're towing, etc.

Let me look up that Trailer's specs, but that looks like it's easily 9,000 lbs or more.

Just did some reasearch on that trailer and as a 5th wheel trailer with basic specs for the Jayco Designer series of trailers ... I'm guessing that the Dry Weight of that trailer is about 9,000 lbs, so fully loaded you're going to be at least 10,500 lbs for a full 5th wheel trailer like that.

I'll bet a 2014 Tunrda Limited 2x4 would be able to handle that ... it's listed at 10,200 total towing capacity, but we all know that it's higher than that (but I'm not telling anyone to tow more than that of course!).

What is the most affordable option for pulling my Designer? I know that is funny from a guy with a Designer. However I need to be practical.
