Wait so you just left it there and picked it up with a bigger vehicle later?

I had a 2001 Windstar with a 2003 Antigua 19CK. The combination was one of the best towing combinations I've ever had (except the 5th wheel). I wish that the Ford had a little more power, but it was super stable.

No, we didn't have a bigger vehicle. We drove slowly and found a campground nearby that supposedly fit our needs. However, although the owner said it had wifi--the wifi did not reach our camper and the bandwidth was pitiful. Then the wars began for wifi access between the owner and us. At the end of the season we just drove out of there and put the camper somewhere else, (also close by). Hopefully we like the second place. We have just upgraded the tires though, so that should help if we must move it again.

Another question about this: I'm also entertaining the 16XRB, which looks like a narrower version of the X17Z, more similar in interior dimensions to the 184 BH. What are people's thoughts about the 7 foot width compared to the 8 foot width? In particular for the Sienna, would I need extra mirrors to peek past an 8 foot trailer? The lady at the dealership says no, but I don't understand how so.

Get the mirror extensions, you will be much happier and confident being able to switch lanes with the ability to see whats back there....

You mean even for a 7-ft wide trailer, right?

Mr scary your right on the money. Ultra light trailer plus A little more spring in the rear and a good anti sway weight distribution hitch.Yes your Minivan or SUV will pull it if you have the horsepower. Large V6 is the minimum.

We have had zero issues towing our 184bh with a odyssey. Been up to the high Sierras several times and it did great. I did get a small WDH which helped with a the slight squat in the rear. Here is my thread. Hope it helps.
