When I looked for Tacoma Towing Capacity it was 3,500 lbs.
The vehicle weighs 3,200 to 3,400lbs. depending on options
An average featherlite 2 horse weighs 1,900 lbs, a steel 2 horse 2,400 lbs.
2 Horses average 2,000
Take the lightest trailer made I could find 1,800 lbs and two 900 lbs horses, that is 3,600 lbs.
Towing 3,500 lbs like a boat to me would be risky, IMO, towing live, moving animals with at best a weight of 3,600 lbs total and most likely closer to 3,800 lbs is just unthinkable, IMO
Tocoma's are small trucks, not full size, There was an older model they posted a 5,000 lbs tow rating with a special hitch, but again these are small trucks, could you imaging a 4,000lb load of animals moving around in the back or a wind gust hitting the trailer, you have a 3,400 lb truck trying to control this????
