That Kia Dealer was an honest broker, that's not a given these days. Great job with that! I just wanted to add that I have a 2019 Bambi 16 and my TV is a 2019 BMW X3 S30i, rear wheel drive model (with the factory installed hitch and 7 pin connector). While no BMW is cheap it really is not that out of reach if one is considering paying at the top for a Honda Pilot, Mazda CX9 or a Jeep Grand Cherokee. I negotiated low to mid 40's, and decided to lease. capacities are 4400/441. You would be surprised how much more the tongue weight is on the Bambi 16. There several posts on here about it, but folks have noted over 400. I use a Tekonsha Prodigy brake controller on the A frame (no under dash wiring needed) and a Blue Ox WD/Antisway Hitch. So far I'm quite pleased with it. And I love the car that I drive 99% of the time I'm not towing! Good luck!
