  1. Tundra 1st Generation (2000–2006)
    I have a 2003 Toyota Tundra crew cab. So I just bought a 28 ft camper and the stock mirrors arnt going to cut it. I looked for aftermarket tow mirrors for it but can’t find any that fit on my gen. I also hate those stupid strap on mirrors. Has anyone tried to put on tow mirrors from the newer...
  2. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    If you were curious about how your 8th gen corolla may perform while towing here's a short demonstration of that. The payload comes in at 1440lb. When there is more to haul I will likely do another longer thorough demonstration, possibly with more weight.
  3. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I purchased a 2006 Solara convertible with the thought of towing a small 1400 lb trailer on an extended vacation. It was quite the ride pulling the trailer home and with a tongue weight approaching 300 lb my rear springs were completely compressed. I see a towing capacity of 2000 lbs on the...
  4. Highlander 4th Gen - Hybrid (XU70/2020-Present)
    Hi, I had a RV shop install a Redarc brake controller and 7 pin connector/harness on our 2022 HiHy. They said all went well until they tested it which then led to the check engine light coming on. I pulled the codes and got: P05DD - I haven't found much on this online. For a Toyota Avalon...
  5. Land Cruiser Forum
    Hi guys, I've recently purchased an automatic 2004 land cruiser. I'm wanting to tow a trailer with it occasionally and know it's better for the engine if I put it into '3' rather than drive while I'm towing. Only problem is, I can't get it into 3. The 3, 2, L gears are offset from P, R, N, D...
  6. Tundra 1st Generation (2000–2006)
    Hey! I am looking around and can't seem to find a 7 pin towing harness for an 2002 tundra. I've seen them for 2003+ but never an 02. Anyone else having this issue for have found a solution?
  7. Highlander 4th Gen - Hybrid (XU70/2020-Present)
    As this question - towing and hitches - will be asked routinely, all of them will be now in one merged thread. Has anyone had an OEM hitch receiver installed on the 2020 Limited or Platinum yet? The hands-free liftgate is apparently an issue. Last I heard, Toyota was trying to figure out a...
  8. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    There have been times when I have been towing a cargo trailer on a long uphill grade within the approved weight limit, and my AT oil overheat warning light goes on. I have to pull over and wait for it to go out and then do that every couple of miles. Is there anything else I can do to cool my...
  9. 4Runner 5th Generation (2010-2022)

  10. Sequoia Gens 1&2 (2001-2022)
    Hey guys, I have a '06 Sequoia with 4 wheel drive. I was kinda of wondering what would be a safe towing capacity.. Obviously the car is old and does not have the same power as it did new. It has a towing capacity of 6200lbs. I am trying to tow a travel trailer thats around 5200 to 5800 lbs. Any...
  11. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Hi folks, we are towing a ~2,000# pop up with 225# tongue weight (probably closer to 300 w/2 propane tanks, battery, etc). We just had the suspension on our 2011HL inspected regarding towing and had a sway bushing replaced, dealer said everything else was fine. Took our first trip and we are...
  12. Highlander Hybrid
    My question is I was told that I have a pre-wired towing wire harness some place near the back bumper. I have been looking for this thing for 2days now and I can not find it. Does anyone know were it may be, or should I just goto the dealer and have the salesman that told me this find it.
  13. Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I've got a 2019 Highlander SE with the ICE engine, not the hybrid. I know the towing limits are 5,000 pounds, with a tongue weight of 500. I've towed 10,000 pounds before with my F-150, and I've towed a utility trailer weighing about 3,500 pounds with the highlander. I have a Toyota...
  14. Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    I had seen general recommendation in the RV world about replacing your passenger car tires with light truck rated tires as they are designed to more easily carry weight. Does anyone have experience one way or another with this question?
  15. Highlander 3rd Generation (2014-2019)
    we went back and forth on whether we could tow with this vehicle but finally decided to give it a go, and wanted to report what we learned. We are towing 21 ft. travel trailer with about 3,700 lbs, and just over 400 lbs tongue weight. these weights are well within the limits in the manual for...
  16. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Curious if anyone has ever experienced issues/damage to your 2nd gen HL from using a Weight Distribution Hitch. I have a 2014 and want to tow a 3,000lb popup. Just looking for some experience to draw from. Thanks!
  17. Tundra 3rd Generation (2014-2021)
    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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...

    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...
