I just have not heard of a Manual Tranny described as Straight Drive before I guess?
A friend has an earlier 4runner with a manual and the smaller 3.0L V6 and driving it across the country with him it would barely pull itself up the mountains much less pulling a trailer!
The 3.4L is a whole different animal though and I am sure it will have no trouble with either the 13' or 16' Scamp
As I said my Tundra V6 had the same motor but is a bigger and heavier truck and I pulled much heavier rigs than those with it without any trouble.
