Toyota makes a long last dependable truck. I know my 2008 Tacoma has been absolutely trouble free for 8 years. At 140,000 miles it's been only maintenance. No part failures at all. Heck, I think I've only replaced 3 bulbs!

I do miss my Tundra. When I first bought my TT I had a 2013 that could tow my trailer UVW of 6800lbs with no problem. The issue was the GVWR of the trick was 7000lbs if I remember correctly. Once I loaded the trailer and truck with my family we were considerably over the GVWR. Those trucks are strong though.

Those of you who are reporting fuel mileage are you reporting the vehicle calculated mileage or a hand calculated mileage.
I have kept track of fuel mileage on the last 4 vehicles I have owned with a phone app and the fuel mileage calculated from the vehicle is always optimistic. Sometimes equivalent to a 2mpg difference.

As far as the OP goes. I would definitely look at upgrading trucks to a 3/4 or 1 ton. You are at the limit now of what a 1/2 ton can tow. Upgrade for the piece of mind and safety. Then when you upgrade trailers you will have that many more to choose from.
