Part of the job of this new van I think I need
is asking it to tow our 19' A/S Bambi on occasion.
Specs say the dry weight of the trailer is about #3600 lbs & tongue weight is roughly #450. We almost never load water and my guess is we are rarely over #4200-4500. We have used a Reese Dual Cam WD hitch for the last 12 years towing with a Tacoma.
We are East Coast people, no great mountainous terrain like out west but not much on the flats either till we get to Fl, lots of ups and downs in between and up to ME.
I don't think we need or want a 4X4.
We've been thinking Pleasure Way Traverse because we like the layout and want the upstairs option. We also like our kayaks. At this stage of the game we are open to all except Hightops and Sprinter style vehicles.
What is your idea of the ideal setup ?
