I have a 2005 Sienna and will be towing a 1200lb teardrop trailer. Is it best to tow in D or 4? The manual suggests 4.
What are your experiences with towing and gear used?

You asked this already and got several replies!

1200 lbs is pretty light, but it's also going to depend on the terrain and your speed. If it drives OK with little back and forth shifting between 4th & 5th, you're good. If it feels like it's lugging or constantly downshifting, then go for 4th as the Owners Manual suggests.
