Swift 184BH in Calgary

Hi everyone, this is our first TT and we're prepping for a trip to Vancouver Island. Just picked up the trailer this morning and quite impressed with the setup so far. We have a WDH on our Sienna and it rides very well! We'll be loading tonight and tomorrow then doing a weight check at the scales tomorrow night. We're trying to be realistic with weight and cargo since we don't want to max out the capacity of the Sienna.

We are already considering an upgrade to a Sequioa but we'll see how this trip goes. We like the van for the convenience of the automatic doors and low sill heights. Time will tell.



I've already seen a lot of posts here about best practices, gear, weights, etc. and will continue to check in occasionally. Thanks for all the info!

Haha, not so shiny when you look close. 😳

The front of the van is covered in tree goo from being parked under the whatever-it-is in front of the house. So sticky it just smears with wiper fluid. Gotta wash before we leave.

But yes, that is one sparkly trailer. We'll just set the little one loose inside; she'll mess it up quick!
