Absolute newbie here, both on the forum and as the owner of a 2010 x23b. Upgraded just last week from a Ď95 Palomino popup. Also upgraded our tow vehicle last week. From an Ď02 F150 to a Ď17 Silverado. Excited to try them both out on our first camping trip next week. The new truck is a 6 cylinder but Iím under towing capacity by a little over 1000 lbs, so I think Iím okay there. Donít know much about our new camper, but we love the floor plan and amenities on the 23b. From the looks of the poll, other folks like the 23b as well.

Seeing as it has been well more than a year since your post I realize my comments are way late, but in case you read this and haven't yet added electric to your hot water tank I encourage you to do so. I installed a Camco electric water heater to my 6 gal. hot water tank on my 2012 X23B 5 years ago and have had no problems with it.

We just bought a 2018 16XRB, which apparently they don't make anymore. We are upgrading from a 2005 Jayco Tent Trailer 1207 model. So this is still giving us a tent trailer feel but with a hard shell look. We took it out for its maiden voyage and it didn't go to bad. A few new things to learn, but all and all it was good. A big hello to the community !

I'm new to this RV thing. I'm looking for an RV, which can be towed with a 2015 4Runner. I was thinking a Jayco 16XRB was about as heavy as I could go. But I see that a couple people here are towing heavier trailers with similar vehicles to mine. For example, one poster uses a 2004 4Runner and another uses a Pathfinder. I'm wondering if these folks are able to tow their vehicle over some of the high mountain passes, such as Red Mountain near Silverton, Colorado.

Be aware that you lose 3-4% horsepower for every 1,000 of elevation. The Silverton-Durango highway is high and steep. We could not get higher than 9900 feet towing our 16XRB with an Trailblazer I6 4.2L engine. I think there are some 5.7L 4Runners?
We love our little 16XRB and towing it with a Tahoe is a dream. I also loved my '96 4Runner - still my dream car.

We bought an x24k (prototype) last winter and love the dual bunks in back for the kids and the x23b type setup in the front half for us. That outdoor kitchen ainít bad also

We traded our popup for a used 19H and are looking forward to taking it out for it's first outing this spring.

Congratulations and good choice. As you can see from the signature, we were in the same place a couple of years back. Very happy with our X19H; a great move from a pup!

To answer your question... I would say with your current tow vehicle you should stick with the 16XRB. You could probably get away with the 17, but you'll be pushing it with the size of the engine and tow capacity of the 4runner. There are plenty of people who disregard the capabilities of their tow vehicles and just buy whatever TT they think suits them best.

I tow our 2018 16XRB with my 2003 4 door Toyota Tacoma. While the 16XRB is well within the tow limits the truck struggles big time when loaded down with passengers, gear and the TT. Your 4runner probably has a 4.0 V6 and towing the 16XRB you will see extremely crappy gas mileage (I get 9mpg when towing our 16XRB), but with a sway control system installed it would be fine. Whatever you do, do not under any circumstances listen to a salesperson when discussing towing capacity. They will tell you whatever you want to hear to get you to buy the TT you're looking at. Read thru your manual and do you homework, you will be much more informed.
