Hi guys, I'm looking for some feedback. My boat is a 1992 ranger 481v with a 150. I have never gotten it weighed with trailer but my guess is at least 4,000 lbs. My current daily/tow vehicle is a 1997 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a 5.7l V8. I am looking into getting a 2012-2015 Toyota Tacoma V6 4x4 double cab shortbed with towing package. I'm only a couple miles away from a Lake Worth boat ramp, which is where I normally fish. I live near lake worth and would like this truck to be able to make treks to different lakes as well. The reasoning behind wanting a smaller truck is because it will mostly be my daily. I park in a tight parking garage for work 5 days a week and I want to fit the truck in my home garage. My silverado fits in the home garage if I park a few inches away from the wall and it barely fits.
So my question is, do I have too much boat for a Tacoma? Does anyone have a Tacoma they use to tow their boat? On paper, the Tacoma's towing capacity is 6,500 lbs and my Silverado's is 7,000 lbs.
