So I just pulled these numbers from the Toyota website:

Which leaves you with a load capacity of 1370lbs.

Tongue weight should be 10% (350lbs) of the trailer weight (3500lbs) for proper distribution so subtract this number from the load capacity. That leaves you with 1080lbs. Subtract the weight of two adults (350lbs) and you have an available load capacity of 730 lbs.

To me, that seems like a sufficient number.

Just my two cents...

If I was buying a Taco to tow, I would for sure get the towing package, which gives you a 6500 or 6800 pound tow capacity. Plus, of course, the tow package. Better cooling and gear ratios, etc..
