This is all so very helpful. After reading through all of this and pouring through listings, we are starting to check out some campers. We have narrowed it down greatly and have some good leads. As for the “how well you can stop” - I think that’s another reason the hybrid is confusing. The non-hybrid Highlanders are rated to tow 5,000 - so I’m wondering if stopping is less of an issue?? I guess we’ll find out and I’ll report back!
