2016 Toyota Tacoma: Hauling the Plastic

by Mike Schmidt, Vehicle Testing Manager on July 25, 2016

2016 Toyota Tacoma

This weekend I used our 2016 Toyota Tacoma to do what trucks do — make it easy to move stuff around. What began as a casual play date between my kids and their friends took a turn for the plastic.

"Look, the kids are having so much fun on that slide."

"They sure are. Do you want it? We have a sandbox we don't use anymore. Want that too?"

Before I knew it, the other dad was helping me load the Tacoma with the newest additions to our land of plastic toys. I couldn't help but notice the extra skip in his step now that he was rid of the clutter. But it made my kids happy, and that goes a long way in my book.

The slide and sandbox fit into the bed of the truck perfectly. I looped a few bungee cords to the Toyota's movable tie-down hooks to limit any shifting. This was a simple move and I had only a couple of miles to drive, so there was no stress. No need for a full-size truck this time.
