Toyota Highlander

Hello everyone!

I am considering buying the Mini Lite ETC 185, the 1905 Mini or the Canyon Cat 15UD. I have a 2012 Toyota Highlander V6 with a dealer installed tow package and a rated 5000 lbs towing capacity. I wonder if someone has this combination and willing to help me choosing which of above RV's would be the best option and how this vehicle performs while towing in terms of power, stability and gas consumption?

Thank you for your help!

my vote is for the 1905 Mini. GVWR of only 3837lbs., well under the 5000lbs. tow capacity.
the Murphy bed is a great feature.

seriously doubt you'll hear from someone with the same combo, since the Pathfinder is not a popular tow vehicle.

but with a quality WDH with built-in sway control, like the Equalizer or Reese Dual-Cam, you should be pretty stable.

gas mileage will be no different than others towing with a gas engine, no matter the size, 8-12mpg range.
it's the air resistance, not the weight that affects gas mileage.
