  1. Tundra 3rd Generation (2014+)
    Hello. I'm curious about the payload for the 2021 Toyota Tundra. I have a Limited model, 4x4 with TRD Off Road and Towing Packages. Toyota lists the max payload as 1,520 lbs. https://www.toyota.com/tundra/features/weights_capacities/8372/8252/8275. However the Tire and Loading Information...
  2. Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    Hello All, I have owned a number of Toyotas that have performed flawlessly. I am looking to purchase either a '13 HL Limited with 95K miles, a 14 LE with 80K or a '15 with 97k. We need a non-truck tow vehicle for a small (3300#) camper. All the vehicles that we are looking at have factory tow...
  3. Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I tow a travel trailer a lot with my 2017 XLE. Over 30000 towing miles so far and it does well. However, just wondering if anyone has installed any type of brake upgrades. I have not experienced any braking issues but thinking having some extra capability for things like long downgrades might...
  4. Highlander 4th Gen - Hybrid (XU70/2020-Present)
    Has anyone had experience with the hybrid system overheating, prompting the driver to pull over and stop to wait for it to cool down? I would like to know how likely it is for the 2020 Highlander Hybrid to overheat while towing near maximum load (3,500 lb) throughout the Rocky Mountains in...
  5. Highlander 4th Generation (2020+)
    For those of you who have experience towing with the 2020 Highlander or Highlander Hybrids, I kindly request that you share the following: Hybrid or non-hybrid Your average fuel economy without the trailer Your average fuel economy with the trailer The total weight of your trailer (including...
  6. Highlander 2nd Gen - Hybrid (XU40/2008-2013)
    I just bought a new-to-me 2008 Hybrid Limited to replace my aging Honda Element. I needed a bit more towing capacity for a small trailer (under 2K lbs) that I tow a few times a year, and I am very excited to be getting better MPG with a car that is so much bigger than my Element. I looked and...
  7. Highlander 3rd Gen - Hybrid (XU50/2014-2019)
    Does anyone one here have experience towing with their HiHy using a Weight Distribution (WD) hitch? Are there any compelling arguments for or against using such a hitch on a Gen 3 HiHy? I'm planing to tow about 3k pounds and will appropriately maintain my tongue wrought around 10% of total load...
  8. Land Cruiser Forum
    I'm looking at a new camping trailer and a new tow vehicle. Considering a 2016 or newer Land Cruiser. The trailer weighs 5K empty so let's say 6K loaded to go. It is 27 feet long and 10.5 feet high. I'd get a weight distributing hitch and antisway bar set-up. I'll be living in Colorado...
  9. Sequoia Forum
    I have installed a receiver hitch and wiring harness on an '07 Sequoia. Only problem is that I don't have any voltage going to the wiring harness, and thus no trailer lights. Disconnected it and tested at the connectors under the back bumper--nothing there either. Have checked the 30 amp...
  10. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    I have a 2006 Highlander Limited 4WD and installed a CURT 13530 Class 3 trailer hitch last month (rated up to 3500 lbs). So far I've only put our bike rack on it but I'd like to get a camper and tow it. I've read mixed reviews about tow capacity but I'd like some guidance here. Thanks ahead...
  11. Tundra 2nd Generation (2007-2013)
    Hey guys, new here. Not sure if this is the right place for this... I have an aftermarket class IV hitch and bumper mount. I had it on my 08 sr5. Looking to sell. Paid $350 for the hitch and $300 for the bumper mount. Looking to get $300+ shipping. Let me know. Thanks!
  12. Sequoia Forum
    I've committed to helping my daughter fetch her dysfunctional 1996 Eclipse from out of state (about a 100 mile tow). The Eclipse grosses out at around 2700 lbs, so we're going to get a car carrier (U-Haul does not recommend a dolly - thoughts?) and pull it back to the house. The only thing...
  13. Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    RE: '87 Dolphin towing power I previously posted with a question about fluid cooling systems, and in that post, I mentioned that I had heard that my truck would pull. But the more I thought about it, the less I knew about whether this is true. So, I'd like to get some opinions on the subject...
  14. Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    I am planning on doing some towing with my '87 Dolphin, and have been doing some research. I have read that it's best to get fluid coolers when the truck is going to be working harder. My question is about which type of cooler — plate, or tube and fin — is best to improve performance and...
  15. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Each year I do a number of festivals at a site 100 miles away. I need my camper and pickup truck there, as well as my daily driver- a 1999 Corolla VE M/T. I plan to tow the Corolla behind the other vehicles so I can leave them there and return for the others both ways. Got a cheap bar at...
  16. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    OK Camry fans, I have a question. (Background: I've had my 1991 Camry for many years and love it. Still getting 30+ mph, not oil leaks, etc.) Anyway, I'd like to put a trailer hitch on it and pull a small utility trailer, max load 900 lbs. + trailer. I only need to make occasional trips of 5-10...
  17. Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Hi All, I'm getting ready to move and need to tow some household items, all boxed up along with a couple small pieces of furniture. nothing very heavy. leaving the washer/dryer behind. Much of this is in plastic boxes with the top that folds down; But the remainder? can my truck pull a small...
  18. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I want some extra support in the rear of my '09 Corolla for towing a motorcycle trailer. Nothing fancy, just a set of air shocks or whatever they're called these days. I'm not looking for a $2k air suspension kit. Thanks.
  19. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    I have never owned a car but will be purchasing one soon. I am an avid fisherman and will be towing a boat 2-3 times per week sometimes distance of up to 200 miles. Most towing will happen within 30 miles though. The boat and trailer I own weighs between 1500 to 1700 pounds. I travel long...
  20. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hello and thanks to all you knowledgeable posters for all the wonderful information contributed to this forum. I mistakenly ordered the 2 series Monroe quickstruts for my 4 cyl. 99 camry. I wouldn't mind the stiffer ride if they will fit without undo reworking. Anyone know if the 6 cyl. strut...
