When we set up to tow our Boler (like a wide Escape 17') with out Sienna (minivan), I checked with Toyota for details about the type of sway control required and they said it was no longer required. I have never used a sway control device or weight-distribution system, and our Sienna does not have any kind of stability control... and we have no sway concerns. Your Mileage May Vary.
I agree - the sway control statement and the 45 mph towing speed limit in the Toyota manuals seem to have little connection to reality.
