I pick up my 17B in February, and I too am thinking about a pre-2013 RAV 4 V-6. What is your mpg when towing your trailer? Thanks.

Towing, almost always over mountain passes, I average 15 litres / 100 kilometres. I'm likely doing the speed limit or close ( usually 90 kph / 56 mph )
I am not adverse to punching the accelerator when I need to.
Around town, not towing, mileage varies a lot ( between 10 litres / 100 K and 13.5 / 100 ).

I've got a 2015 Pro series Toyota Tacoma 4X4 with the towing package. It has all the power I need for towing a 17b, can carry all my camping needs in the truck bed, has good enough gas mileage for around town driving, has 4 doors for 4 passengers (comfortably) and fits in my garage. As far as full sized trucks are concerned...I don't need or want one.

Do you have to serve an apprenticeship before you can buy a Pro series truck?

We get about 15 mpg while towing on varied terrain and 22 when not towing with our 2011 rav4 with tow package. I have an AC unit which dosen't help the mileage.

Here you go. The metadata that orients the photo sometimes gets stripped when it shouldn't be. I know the cause on an iPhone, but other systems sometimes produce the same problem.
