19XUD CCC and frontal surface
Hello, current popup owner here that's been lurking for a while and trying to decide on a Hybrid. We really like the 19xud model but I'm worried about maxing it out. At only 4250 GVWR - 3530 dry = 720 lbs CCC, then subtract 200+ lbs for an awning, AC, battery and propane tank it doesn't seem to leave much in reserve. Do any current owners have problems with this?
I was also looking at a 2012 x19h which is lighter (3200 lbs) and has a much higher cargo capacity, but towing with only a 4500 lbs max for our Pilot I think the smaller frontal surface on the 19xud is more important than the 300 lbs saved on the x19h. But, the 19xud has a 4" lift which might offset that gain. Am I looking too much in the details? I know a v8 would be ideal but we just came from a Suburban that had nothing but problems and our Pilot has been trouble free for 2 years so wish to keep it.
