Popups have a low profile, so far far less wind resistance than a full height camper. I have a friend who used to pull one with a camry 4-cyl. They tow pretty easy.

I tow a pop-up, more of a expanable trailer. 4000lb trailer. Using a WDH w/800lb bars and electric brakes. Custom towing mirrors added to the taco. Pictures in my gallery.

No problem whatsoever towing our Coleman, which has a dry unloaded weight of around 2000 if I recall. Add the AC on top, all our junk inside plus the propane tank.

I do have the V6 with the factory towing package however. No electric brakes or other equipment but we rarely go where there are any steep grades to negotiate. No problem seeing over and around it with the standard mirrors on the 07 TRD Sport.

"pop up" is vague..some are much more heavy than others. my brother has the Fleetwood ED3, and that thing is a beast. i wouldnt enjoy yanking it cross country. there are some super compact light versions i imagine would tow easy.

well its sort of funny but my dad drove for carolina freight for 35 years and the only wreck i have ever know him to have, he got a pop up loaner to see how he would like it, a little scotty, and we happened to go to Cape Hatteras and a nor-eastern hit.... the wind was so strong it started to rip the canvas, he got mad and frustrated and he jack-knifed the hell out of that little trailer, and then he had to do all kinds of ass kissing to get it repaired, and towed in without a police report, since that could go against him.. but at night its sort of easy to not think about. and that was one fun easter vacation!
