Yes Z the Highlander is a good choice. I see them in these parts towing small to good sized travel trailer.

I was at a towing seminar a few years ago. The speaker, a well known towing guru used the older 4Runners as an example of how "not" to design a vehicle for towing". Stability issues are it's achillies' heel.

MC1,
What do you mean seminars? Are seminars presented at rallies? BTW, thanks for the TV information/insight.
Sinc.

Z, the seminar I attended was at an RV show in Hamilton Ontario. It was hosted by Andrew Thomson who is highly respected in the world of specialized towing and tow vehicles. Here is his site on seminars. Can-Am RV :: Events & Seminars

He does travel all over North America and is known to do seminars at Rallys in Canada and the US. If interested you could contact him to see if he would be speaking at a location near you.

There many be other knowledgeable folks giving seminars too but the only other one I know of would be Garth Cane who also is from the Toronto area.

MC1-
Thanks for the link. What a great idea. I will look around my area for something similar as an introductory session to RV'ing would come in handy for us. Currently reading on porta-potti to better gauge which direction to follow in our quest.

Thanks,
Z
