    I should have done this a year ago when I bought our certified used '17 CrewMax SR5 but it's just been a crazy year since.
    The Tundra replaced an "06 Ridgeline which I liked but we wanted something to better transport grandkids in car seats; however, we still wanted to have the utility of a truck bed. It's hard to say who loves this Tundra more, my wife or me :D
    This Tundra has helped to move two kids into their homes, pick up a 4 piece sectional sofa from Costco and an engine for my '52 Plymouth. Now we are thinking of getting a "couples" style travel trailer for weekend getaways.
    This site has been a great source of information. It helped me in picking out my running boards. So thank you to the Tundras.com members who contribute.
    Tony

    Thank you for the Welcoming messages. As I shared in my original post, I was starting to look at "Couples" sized travel trailers but have since learned that my Tundra which has the smaller V8 did not come with the Tow/Haul option. So I'll be researching the site for possible solutions. Since I was asked to post a photo of my '52 Plymouth Cranbrook aka "Lil' Jenny" here she is. It's pretty much stock with the 218 flathead 6 & 3 on the tree. I bought the Plymouth when I retired in 2013 as a way to "relearn" working on cars the way I did as a kid. And it's fulfilled that purpose.
