wow, you all are great, thanks for the warm welcome. I have news! So I found a 17" from the airstream guy, waiting anxiously to close the deal and get it to Boise. In the meantime, I've sold my car, and am searching for an appropriate SUV to pull my new companion. BTW, I can't be more excited YAAAHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOO. OK so I need something costing under 10k and can pull a Caravel
with a base wt of 2,250 lb (when empty). So I don't want to mess with the small SUVs having a 3,500 capcity, no no no. I want to be able to scale the Blue Mountain pass sans issue. So need at least 4000 capacity. I don't want a truck.
* old ML320 (found a 2001 for 10K)
* honda pilot
* jeep commnader (yeah, right again, $$$)
* Xterra (ugly, but it'd do)
* 4Runner (I have a soft spot for these, but some review said they're not all that when it comes to towing)
Ideas? Comments? Can't wait to be official!
