No I don't but my son has a 2.7 Taco 2wd and he tows a 12' Cargo Pro box trailer with all his race gear and spares. The trailer is aluminum and comes in at 900lbs empty. The load is another 8-900 lbs of Supersport racebike and gear like fuel, tires, tools, paddock stuff etc.

I drove with him to Barber last fall from Boston (1200 miles one way). I can say the truck did well, but rarely got out of 4th gear. Generally we ran it in 4th at about 70mph and 3000 rpm as I recall. 5th gear is an overdrive apparently.

I think his box trailer rig is probably a tougher tow then an open trailer with 3 dirt bikes loaded. The rig:

I found this from a add online.

For what it's worth.....I owned one for years and pulled it with a 1991 GMC P/U ,it was a 6 cylinder two wheel drive.
The trailer was a HP -14 and was loaded with 2 dirt bikes and a lot of gear.
Never had a problem pulling it... They are a great handling trailer.
