    Have a 16ft Lance travel trailer, dry wt is 3450 , we will have a weight distribution hitch with sway control. We are newbies at towing any suggestions or concerns with this set up?
    Thanks in advance

    Installed Rago brackets and 4" cube ditch lights. Weather tech mats. Cargo net. Cargo mat. Ordered Gobi rack with ladder.
    Take it easy, and plan to stop way before you need to. Make sure all break lights are working on the trailer, breaks are good on the 4runner? Have some construction cones with you in case you are on the side of the Highway. I have a 43' 5th wheel and we carted this RIG all over this beautiful land of ours and we love to camp. Make sure you have AAA as a back up plan. Most of all, enjoy yourself.5th wheel.jpg

    The gears are 4:10 and pulls like a dream. Mileage is not as good as the 3:73 but didn't buy it for economy.
