We also have a 05' 4-Runner, but with the V-8. We bought it in 05' to tow our travel trailer. The first tt was a 24' and weighed in at about 4500-4600 (wet). Our new tt (2013) is a little larger at 25' and 5000 (wet) Wet meaning loaded and ready to go. We camp a lot. The 2005 tt we used 380 nights over 7 seasons. The V-8 (4x4) has a towing max of 7200 lbs. It tows 5000lbs just fine, but I wouldn't want to do much more.... The 2013 I went with a weight-distrubution hitch. The 4-Runners have a rather soft suspension, so a W-D hitch will keep the vehicle level and cut out 80% of the sway. With the V-6 I would keep it under 4k to be easy on the power-train. Over-all the 4-Runners make great daily drivers. The only real issue is the catalytic converters (4) had to be replaced twice now. ?? As far as gas mileage I get 17 city and 23 highway. Towing I get or got 12.25 towing the 2005 tt and 10.5 - 11 towing the 2013. The 2013 is heavier but is also 7" taller causing more drag.
