Cute little unit. Be very mindful of the OCCC of that model though; it plays it VERY close to the GVWR of the trailer (meaning you won't be able to pack a whole lot in it). For a few bucks more, the X19h has lots more cargo, and only two feet longer.

Hello and welcome. We just recently purchased our X17Z and love it. We did our first trip last weekend. We carry pretty much only the essentials in the TT (beading, cloths, cooking utensils) and load most everything else in the TV until we arrive at our destination to keep the weight down. I did however travel with a few gallons of fresh water so the wife could use the nice clean potty in the TT during our rest stops.

This trailer was the perfect size for my little pickup and tows great.
