I personally would not do it. Anything 20’ and up is full size territory in my opinion.

I picked my Champ up in Lafayette. I towed it back to Rockwall with my Tacoma. No problems at all. LA does not have weight on trailer titles so I had to weigh it before registering. With 1/2 tank of gas (95 gallon tank) and no gear it weighed 4650 lbs hitched to the truck. I ran 75 on interstate all the way back. Tacoma had the 4.0. I never had any problems launching and never used 4wd. I think you will be fine. I bought a Tundra not long after buying the boat. It was time for a new truck and wanted a full size again. I hated to sell the Tacoma it was a great off road truck. I could out run the mules on the deer lease. [Linked Image]

75mph in what gear and at how many rpms? Just asking since it can barely carry its own bloated butt much less an extra 5k lbs. At 75 I'm about 3200 rpms in 4th and about 4500 in 3rd. I drop to 3rd fairly regular with no trailer.

I towed an 18' Ranger with my '06 Tacoma with 4.0 without any issues. The four runner can weigh 400+ pounds or more. Maybe yours has a different rear end ratio ? I could tow on the hwy in 5th a lot of the time

Maybe I got a lemon but there seems to be a lot of similar complaints.

I towed in 5th. I don't recall RPMs but normally at 75 it would be in the low 2s. I had an 18' Ranger 375 before the Champ. I can't honestly say you did not know it was back there but really did not feel it once up to speed.

I have a 2020 4Runner and it tows my 21' Legend well enough. I keep my boat at a marina so I don't tow often. Longest trip was 3.5hrs and that was when I first bought the boat. Gas mileage and acceleration were awful, but it handled fine.
