    Looks great, hope I can see in Quartzite next month or try and make Moab. I like this one but no place for the T-dub.

    I love my Tundra. It's a 2015 sr5 5.7 v8 with 6 1/2' bed. I tow a 28' ultralight travel trailer gvr of 7700lbs. The trailer weighs 5500lbs with 2k of load rating. I put my two TW's in the bed of the truck. This combo tows like a dream. The Tundra has well known reliability and the tranmission with tow haul mode is awesome. I used to be a big Dodge fan from way back not so much now, maybe for a diesel version. Talk to any RV dealer they will recommend the Tundra for a gas tow vechicle up to 10,500 lbs. The end of the year is a great time to buy a truck. I got mine in December 2014 with a great interest rate and price @ 33,000.00 for Sr5 double cab. The back seat is actually a nice size for sitting in. The seats in mine are some kind of heavy nylon which has been surprisingly great, durable and easy to clean. The new ones now should have an intergrated electronic brake controller as an option it was coming out mid year 2015. The tow haul package is standard.

    I had a 2005 v6 tundra and loved it but not enough tow capacity. There are rumors of a 2017 Tundra diessel made by Cummins with allison tranny. 12,000 plus tow cap.
