    I have a 2015 Tundra Crewmax 4.6L (no tow/haul button) and have never towed anything with it. We plan on getting a TT for our family of 4 to take on trips all across the country. The TT we're looking at getting has a dry weight of 4,615#, a cargo capacity of 1,385# and a dry hitch weight of 470#.

    Along with the TT, I plan on getting a weight distribution hitch, sway control and brake controller.

    I *think* the truck should be able to pull it safely but please correct me if I'm wrong.

    From what I've read so far in this forum, payload capacity might be my bigger concern. The sticker shows a payload capacity of 1,355# with 166# to subtract for modifications. That leaves me with 1,189# for my family of 4, gear to load and the tongue weight.

    Am i pushing the limits of my truck and should just look for less trailer? Or will this setup be just fine and not be a headache to haul on vacations across the country? Thanks in advance!

    You will be close on the capacity, and if your careful on what/where you load everything, the truck should be fine.
