I recently pulled my 1968 Overlander 26' with my 2002 4.7 liter Sequoia on a week long trip without problems, though it works on the hills. I don't yet have a balancing hitch or anti-sway anything and it pulled solid and true at 60-65 mph. A little sag in the rear of the TV, but not bad!

Towing with a Sequoia

I tow my 25' FC RB Twin with a 2012 Sequoia. It has the tow package and the 5.7 l engine. Just returned from a 5800 mile trip to Nova Scotia and PEI. Last year Grand Canyon and southern Utah parks, etc. Home is Fairhope, Alabama. I researched all the SUV's prior to buying the Sequoia and this tow vehicle is perfect. It does love the gas (about 11 mpg) when towing, but I am completely satisfied otherwise.

I've towed my FC 27' with my 2015 Sequoia for over 10,000 miles now, including through Utah and Colorado last spring. It does just fine....I use the tow haul mode and S gears, mostly in 2WD. Mileage about 11 mpg.

Note, Tundra factory tow mirrors will fit a Sequoia (2007 and new models). Very easy install, I did it at a campground.

Make sure you get the real Toyota mirrors, the aftermarket ones are problematic. Found the best price on Amazon. You will lose the power folding feature unless you spring for the real expensive ones.

You'll Do Fine!

You will do FINE with the Sequoia. I tow my 34' Panamerica with a 2010 Tundra 5.7L (Short Bed) with ease. It has a factory tow package. The WDS hitch was fine tuned by CanAm RV (London, Ontario, CAN). They also installed a brake controller for the trailer. Call Andy (Owner); VERY knowledgeable about tow vehicle issues and SOLUTIONS! I am certain that your Sequoia will be more than able to handle the task. I've done mountains and found this: you'll get about 10-13 MPG; flat highway about 16/17 MPG; city w/o trailer about 13 MPG. Going diesel with SOB vehicle will yield better mileage BUT you'll pay $$$ for the rig. We wanted a long lasting comfy tow rig rather than a big Tonka toy as a everyday use vehicle. I like the big Tonka's (Hey, I'm a GUY!) - just don't need one!

If the drive train is the same, it will come down to payload, or your preference of one over the other.

I tow gently and get 13.5 mpg. I consider this very good mileage. Hey, you are towing a trailer. Nothing is going to give you great mileage. I am on my way to the Outer Banks now. Computer says 14.4 mpg after 220 miles.

Call Andy and run with whatever he tells you. You might consider a run to his shop. Getting the right hitch dialed in is very important. You only have to do it once.

Congrats on your new Airstream and good luck.

owning a Sequoia

I have 2008 Sequoia, limited, 5.7 pulling 27 FB Safari. It's a dream. Cruise control in the Rockies no problem. Built in GPS at times a real bear and side mirrors totally inadequate. MPG about 12.
