Has anyone here used a Toyota 4Runner as a tow vehicle for a 17' Casita? This is a vehicle I have considered.

Family tow vehicle

We tow a 16 ft Casita SD with a 2015 Highlander with no problems and use about 13 liters per 100 kms ( yes we are Canadian) We also appreciate the 7 seat capacity for family outings.

We use a 4Runner for a Bigfoot 17.5 trailer that weighs 4400 lbs loaded to travel. Reese weight distributing hitch. Very good combination. It will do 60mph on level highway with no wind. Slow on steep hills, but overall a good match. The 4Runner fits in our driveway and garage (1932 home). Nothing bigger would do that. Also 20mpg without trailer and 14 with trailer. We have never had sway or other towing problems. It should be plenty for a 17' Casita.
