Towing takes a lot of work, both on your part and the part of your Orlando Toyota truck! However, it doesn’t have to be a hassle every time you want to hit the road and bring along your gear. Toyota of Orlando is here to help! We have two trucks that are perfect for your towing needs – namely, the powerhouse 2015 Toyota Tundra in Orlando – and tips to help you make the most of your towing experience when you take to the highway.
Hit the road in the 2015 Toyota Tundra this summer!
When you take your Orlando Toyota Tundra out on the road to tow, it’s important to remember that you have a lot more weight behind you, as well as a lot more length! Here are some driving tips to ensure you and your Toyota truck and all of your cargo get safely from point A to point B!
Use our Orlando Toyota towing tips when you pack heavy!
Towing tip 1: Remember to check your taillights and turn signals before you hit the road! You’ll need to wire your trailer to reflect the turn signals and brake lights that you’ll use in your Orlando Toyota Tundra, so make sure everything is hooked up and ready to go BEFORE you hit the road!
Towing tip 2: Leave plenty of space in between your new Toyota Tundra and the car in front of you! You have more weight behind you when you tow, so it’s going to take you longer to come to a complete, safe, stop. If you don’t leave enough space, you run the risk of rear-ending the car in front of you when you try to come to a halt!
Towing tip 3: Take turns wide! You’ll have to navigate turns more carefully with a trailer hooked to the back of your 2015 Toyota Tundra in Orlando. Make sure to leave yourself enough room to turn and don’t turn too sharply (you run the risk of toppling over). You should also slow your speed and use your turn signal to indicate your movements to other drivers around!
Towing tip 4: Make sure your Orlando Toyota truck can handle the load! The 2015 Toyota Tundra has a towing capacity of up to 10,500 pounds (we told you - it’s a powerhouse). However, you don’t want to max out your truck’s towing capabilities! You could damage the frame AND the engine if you overdo it!
Towing tip 5: Remember how much extra length you have on your ride! When you hit the road in your Orlando Toyota Tundra, you get accustomed to driving it and how it maneuvers. Driving while towing is much different – you’ll need a lot more room to change lanes! Be sure to allow for it so you don’t cause a collision!
