Hi everyone,

We pick up our trailer this Friday. I have not towed a trailer in 10+ years (and it was a 16' Aristocrat towed with a Caravan) and will now be towing a 26' trailer with a Sequoia! We aren't at retirement age yet so it'll be vacations and weekends. Plan on spending more time at the Outer Banks in NC. Will be interesting to tow again... and with such a long trailer!

Welcome to IRV2 from a fellow Virginian.

You should not have issues towing the 26' trailer. Just make sure you have a good weight equalizing hitch and good anti-sway controls. Sometimes pulling a trailer with a short wheelbase vehicle like a SUV sway can be an issue. We pulled a 26' TT for years with a Ford F150 and had no issues. Your Sequoia should handle it fine.
