What Parts Do I Need To Pull a Travel Trailer Camper With a 2022 Toyota Sienna?


I need a receiver, wiring and brake controller for towing a small travel trailer with my new 2022 Toyota Sienna. Can you tell me what all parts that I need?


Expert Reply:

First you will need a receiver like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT55MR. This receiver is rated for up to 675lbs of tongue weight and 4,500lbs of trailer weight with or without a weight distribution hitch. Be sure to not exceed the towing ratings given by Toyota for your Sienna.

For the wiring you will need to start with a Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # TK69FR which will give you a 4-way flat connector. This 4-way will take care of your brake lights, turn signals and running lights portion that your camper requires. The 4-way will plug into the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller # ETBC7 which will provide you with the 7-way and additional wiring components needed to install a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195 on your Sienna.

I do recommend using a Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37060ET to both keep your Sienna riding level and reduce the trailer sway caused by strong winds and large trucks on the roadways. You will not need to remove any components of this hitch when its time to back up and maneuver your camper. This system is rated for trailers with a tongue weight of 200-600lbs and a maximum trailer weight of 6,000lbs. Best of all this hitch is Made in the USA and comes with a Lifetime Warranty.

You will need a 1-7/8" 12pt Thin Walled Socket # ALL643216 to install the included 2" hitch ball on the the Equal-i-zer hitch head. If your travel trailer uses a 2-5/16" coupler you will need to also get the 2-5/16" Ball # EQ91-00-6100.

If you are concerned about the amount of noise that comes with this type of weight distribution hitch Equal-i-zer created Sway Bracket Jackets # EQ95-01-5150 that will help to reduce the noise.
