That's the exact combination we have. 2012 x17z being pulled by a 2007 V6 4Runner. 4Runner is rated for 5K towing and it tows nicely.

Hi Gregga,

I have a 2004 Toyota 4Runner with the V6 and we just bought a 2012 Jayco X18D. The $runner has no problem pulling the camper up to about 70 mph... then you really have to put a lot of peddel to the floor to maintain speed.

I do recomend a weight distribution hitch, I wouldn't want to go verry far without one... the truck squats in the rear and the steering feels a little light without it .. long and short of it is that the 18 ft pulls just fine with the 4Runner.

Hitch and sway bars will be included in the deal! I'll make sure of that.
Sounds like she's towards an 18 Ft Funfinder that is around 3500 Dry (still trying to push Jayco). Anyone know anything about these camepers?
