Blue smoke

I have an excursion as a family vehicle it has about 70k miles on it. I use it rarely to tow my camper but its mainly just a leisure vehicle on the weekends for the family. I’ve realize that whenever I tow the camper on long drives it starts puffing blue smoke. Should I be worried? I’ve read it could be injectors or head gaskets, just wanted to see some input. Keep in mind I dont know much about diesels at all.

Blue smoke is usually oil. Probably not injectors or headgaskets.

If you use it rarely, I would "burn that candle" when it is up and running. Sounds like oil burning off the turbo, after sitting for too long...just a hunch

cheers
