2006 Sienna Toad

I tow a 07 CR-V curb weight 3500 lb. four down but have the need to tow a 06 Toyota Sienna which is handicaped adapted for carrying my daughters wheel chair. The curb weight is 4120 lb.can I do it with my Dutch Star with the 5000 lb. hitch if I have the Sienna set up to tow four down.

As long as you don't exceed the 5K max you should be fine.

Check your hitch, most 2" receiver hitches are rated for 10K but your motorhome is probably only rated to 5K. The stronger hitch will not increase the amount you can tow, as this is part of the chassis manufacturers Gcvwr. But it will give you a margin for peace of mind that the hitch is more than strong enough to do the job.
