hodag, Nope, I'm up in CT. I primarily use it in LI Sound. The closest I've been fishing to Lake Anna (assuming you're talking about VA) is Deep Creek Lake in western MD. The boat was primarily used in Lake Erie/OH/PA/NY reservoirs before I moved to New England.

Just guessing, used to live in Va. Now I'm going to be hauling that boat 5 hours up and back into Wisconsin, When you tow yours how fast are you driving and do you keep it in 5th or 4th?

I have been in the market for a good trailer light enough for the Xterra to easily haul but with enough features to make vacations comfy for the fam.

Found this site and I believe it is the ultimate well built and easily towed travel trailer for the X. The fact it is pictured with a FJ Cruiser tells me it would hit the sweet spot in terms of weight to feature ratio. For me, the CL16BHB would be the dream.

Like I tell my wife, if you are gonna dream, dream big. Those things are well over $20K out here, way too much for a 16' TT, IMO. http://cosprings.craigslist.org/rvd/2856934681.html Our latest obsession (changes daily :geek: ) is the K-Z Spree Escape E196S. http://kz-rv.com/spree_escape/E196S.html Hard to find a TT with a decent amount of ground clearance, though; typically the sewer drains hang way down below the frame.

That is exactly what we are/were gonna buy too...the 196S! awesome little trailer. We are now unsure if we are gonna pocket cash from our existing camper, or buy another one. decisions, decisions. If we pocket cash, I am most likely getting 33's...so I'm thinking CASH!

I am down with your opinion of the price and definitely consider this a lux TT, however, I do think it would retain it's value down the road.

The biggest issue for me towing is weight. I have towed a 21' TT with my X and it was more than I felt comfortable with, however, I wasn't using a weight distributing hitch at the time.

Another possibility is this for the family-cheaper (but smaller) and I dig the garage feature. Just not so sure of the R-POD build quality though.

A weight distribution sway control hitch makes a HUGE difference in control and stability, get one and a 21, or 23 or even a 26' trailer is very stable and towable with the X.
