I bought that trailer late last year. Love it. I haven't seen a problem with the exposed belly camping through the winter here in Texas but that is usually above freezing. We have had it out In the 30s though. The furnace works well.

I haven't seen many SUVs that I'd pull that trailer with. Make sure to look at the numbers and don't just go with what the salesman tells you. I've heard them tell me anything just to sell a trailer.

Just a side note - I am 6'4 as well and fit just fine in all of the shower/tub combos. Most models even have a bubble skylight in there too which provides extra headroom.

I also second what other members have said about the tow vehicle for that size of trailer. Unless the SUV is an Excursion or Suburban I would seriously think twice about going for that thing... Otherwise a new tow vehicle will be in your budget in the near future, which could have been money spent on a nicer trailer with all the bells and whistles that's a bit smaller and within the capabilities of your current vehicle.

Just because your tow rating says you can tow it doesn't mean that you should. A lot of guys, including myself, like to stay within 75-80% of the tow ratings to ensure acceptable performance.

Id be willing to bet your suv wont safely pull the camper.You best look into that whole aspect prior to buying.I did the same thing,bought a TT and had a dodge conversion van that I was told no problem would tow it,and it did...on flat ground!!!!! I had to wind up renting 3/4 ton trucks everytime I went out until this past September I bought a Dodge Ram 2500

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your TT.

This forum is great. The site is full of friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful members.

If you haven't already, try the 'search' function. There is a lot of good information from over the years. It's very likely you'll find answers to questions you didn't know you had.
