so here is the final followup to the thread i started about 2 years ago! i had not really intended traveling with my AS but was using it as a bedroom at my kids house. now deciding to start travelling.
i wanted awd and considered diesel for the torque.
just bought a BMW X5d and picking it up tomorrow.

thanks for everyone's opinion.

a further update. i have done about 1000 miles pulling the caravel with the 2011 bmw x5d.
that is a diesel for those that arent familiar. i dont use a weight distribution system and have yet to put on the brake contoller that i bought. i do not have an antisway system.
the trailer and car behave fantastically. i tow easily at 65-70 mph, feel very stable and safe. the car tows easily and it has been absolutely wonderful for me.

further update BMW X5d

i have now done over 10 000 miles with the 2011 BMW X5d and couldnt be happier. just went on the wbcci caravan on the blue ridge parkway and it did just fine while some bigger trucks and vans struggled. this is a great combination.
