I purchased a Toyota 4Runner!

via Toyota website
I knew that I needed a different vehicle to tow a vintage travel trailer. My Highlander had towing ability, but only to 2500 lbs...not enough. The local Toyota dealer had a 2011 4Runner with only 15,000 miles. It was a Certified Used Toyota, and that mean that the warranty is better than a new vehicle...7 years and 100,000 miles bumper to bumper with roadside assistance. The towing capacity is 5000 lbs...enough for what I need. The end of the story is that I traded in my Highlander for the 4Runner. I have started my quest for a vintage trailer, and I have my eye on a 1963 Aloha (made in Oregon) that has been restored. The gal who owns it and I are setting a date to see it.
