I am new to the forum and could use a little help thinking about options. We are currently traveling in a VW Eurovan Camper. The EVC is a great vehicle and nice to drive, but it is getting a little small for the two of us and our German Shepherd. We would give up some things making a change -- the EVC fits in our garage, is easy to maneuver and gets good gas mileage. Plus it goes into virtually any camp site.

We are thinking of a few possibilities. A Bambi, a Casita trailer or a Sprinter-based unit like an Interstate.

Reading parts of this forum it seems like towing anything can be a pain in the patoot. Even a Bambi would significantly complicate our travels, it seems. I'm sure many of you have been through this thought process and may be able to offer some insight about things to consider.

A few questions, please. Can I tow a Bambi with a BMW X5 or a Toyota 4Runner? Is a 16' size adequate for two plus dog? Does the single axel of the Bambi still give the great handling shown in the video with the Cayenne? HAs anyone made a similar switch in vehicles?

Thanks for your help.
