My TV is a 2008 Toyota Tacoma 4 door with the factory V6 towing package installed: Class-4 hitch, transmission oil cooler, supplemental engine oil cooler, heavy duty battery
, 130-amp alternator, 7-pin connector.
It came with the brake controller pigtail and I had a Tekonsha Prodigy brake controller installed.
Available Tongue weight - 650 lbs (at 400 lbs, I'm at 62% capacity)
Max trailer weight - 6500 lbs (at 3060 lbs, I'm at 47% capacity)
Being an aviator for 31 years I've always trusted in extra runway, extra altitude, extra endurance, etc. It's a mindset . . . Like Pete D. alludes to . . . don't press it to the edge or your margin of safety may not be there when you need it most.
Glad you like the pics. I figure the blog will be a good way for family & friends to keep track of me after I retire and hit the road more often. (Many thanks to my daughter-in-law, Thais, for helping me set it up!)
