We just picked up our 2109s a couple of weeks ago. Our 4runner (2006 v8) had no issues on our quick getaway weekend test. We have a blue ox wdh and it rides better than our previous pop-up did. You should be fine!

This is a follow up... Towed our 2109s for 5 hours with our 4runner, and after 4 hours when I stopped to get gas there was strange gurgling sound when pulling in, but not when stopped. Gauges all said everything was fine, fluid level in cooling system was fine, so I slowed down for the last hour just in case. To make a long story shorter, it turned out to be one of the heat shields had come loose (second one in the last couple of years). This is a common problem with 4runners, just wanted to pass that on in case you ever have those symptoms, check those shields! The 4runner towed the 2109s great other than that shield problem.

Thanks, I'll put that in my memory bank. Going this weekend, but towing with works F350 dually. I'm only going to use 4Runner when that truck is unavailable. Did you get a transmission cooler installed on your 4Runner?

Iefman - my 4runner had one on it when I bought it (used).

We tow our 2109S with a 2010 Sierra with 4.8 V8 and 3:23 axle. Just returned from Lancaster PA area and encountered lots of hills there no back. The truck did a satisfactory job of both towing and stopping with an average fuel mileage of 13 mpg. Our trailer weighs just under 3700 lbs dry weight. We love this trailer, it is so perfect for 2 people. We have a weight distribution hitch and sway control.

Thanks, our first trip was Cooks Forest. I'm sure we'll get to Lancaster next summer

We have a 2109s (we pack heavy) and pull the hills in Vermont. TV is a 2011 V8 Pathfinder, but I am lucky to get 9 mpg.

We've had to fix the interior as the trailer had a roof leak from the factory. Not so sure if I can give a thumbs up for the unit...The front panel now has two large bubbles under the skin.
