  1. 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...

  3. Sequoia Forum
    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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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?
  7. 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...
  8. 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!
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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!
