Anybody got one that pulls with it? How does it pull?

I have a 2007 with 5.7 engine and regularly pull a 30' bumper hitch camper with it....no problems on pulling it but gas mileage, depending on conditions, will run from 8.5 to 10 mpg. Both camper and truck are paid for so gas mileage doesn't bother me any.

My dad has one and pulls a tractor around. It does alright, but gas milage goes down hill. Not that it is great to begin with. Depending on what you are pulling and how much it might be fine. If you are pulling something big and frequently. I would look at a diesel from one of the big three.

I don’t pull with my new Tundra but pulled a 18ft boat with my 2007 with 5.7. Pulling is no problem whatsoever but as stated above, gas mileage is rough.

Mine pulled OK but the truck did not carry much. The rear would always sag with as little as 500 pound tongue weight.

I pulled a skid steer around a day last week, mine is lifted with all terrain tires so gas mileage couldnt get much worse. If i didn’t have it in tow mode stopping was a little slow, no trailer brakes. Other than that it pulled just fine on interstate and off.

I have the older body style 2002 model 4.7 V8. Mine does not pull well. I have pulled 17 and 20 foot boats and some general use trailers in the 16 foot range. You can really tell something is back there with it. On those models, the factory front rotors are going to get really hot and warp if you pull a boat or something similar weight. I recommend ditching those and going with some aftermarket drilled and slotted rotors. That will help on them not getting as hot.

I have a 2005 with the 4.7. I pull a 17 foot camper or a 19 foot bass boat all the time. It does ok. I turn the overdrive off and run 65 or so to keep RPMs below 3000. I get 12-13 MPG pulling either one. I wouldn't recommend this truck for a camper or boat any bigger than mine, but the newer 5.7s are probably much stronger.

I have a 2016 and it has pulled everything I have fine. I have pulled 16 ft enclosed trailer through the mountains with furniture, bass boat, flat beds with several tons scrap metal/lumber. No problems. It will use some gas while doing it though.

I just pulled our pop-up to South Carolina. I averaged 14.4 mpg back and forth through the mountains. I have a 2013 5.7l crewmax 4x4.

I don't think you'd have any issues with pulling out of the Tundra. As far as squatting or sagging goes I'm not sure about that. We are offered F150's or Tundras at work and I almost got a Tundra last time but decided on another Ford. Don't regret it at all but the ones who have Tundra's brag on how good they pull.

They’ll pull but the gas mileage is awful.

The newer 5.7L pull like no other gas burner, except the 6.4L HEMI, but they drink gas like no other as well, especially with a load behind them. They are rated for no more than 10,000 lbs towing, but the photo below shows a boat I just had delivered from California. 13,000 pounds, 1,800 miles, probably stopped at every other gas station and probably will be replacing the transmission soon. Not my problem as it was a shipping/delivery service hired by the boat manufacturer. I was shocked when he pulled through the gate, as I was expecting semi truck and low boy trailer.

I'd be more worried about stopping that than pulling it :shock: :shock: :shock:

Dadgum! That truck will be for sale soon for cheap. Talk about abuse.

I used to pull an 18 ft trailer with a tractor, bushhog, plow, blade and disc with my Landcruiser and I put 312,600 miles on it with the original transmission and engine and it never had an issue. I didn’t do it a lot though. Toyota’s are overbuilt and under powered which is why they last so long.
