Just wondering. When I was a kid, my dad had a single cab gmc pickup. My parents, me and my sister and our dog all squished into the front seat, with 3 ATC's in the bed of the truck and popup trailer behind. I don't think my dad worried much about tow/ payload limits.

I'm thinking some kind of hybrid trailer is probably best for your family.

I like the floorplan of the Roo 233S. It looks like it would have enough room and just make the limit for towing. Thanks for the ideas!

Just a suggestion, but think a bit outta the box. A good, used crew-cab dually could be had reletivly cheap. It seems like false economy to buy a vehicle for once-in-a-while use, but I bet you would lose more on depreciaiton on the 5ver than what you would pay for an older, but dependable truck.

And you get to keep your beloved 5ver in the deal!

p.s. as a side note.... my trusty Excursion has been relegated to backup duty. I changed jobs and now work about 35 miles from home. I didnt like the idea of grinding it to a powder just going back and forth to work, so I got a 97 Olds 88, one onwer, 120K miles and runs like a champ for $1700 just to commute. Its been two weeks since I have even started the Exy. It only gets used now if I need to haul a trailer. figuring on fuel price alone, if the Olds lasts to the end of September, it will have paid for itself.

There are def benefits to the 233S, especially sleeping space. Check out the Roo forum; lots of cool mods to help personalize it for your family. We are curious to see how things go with our Roo during our hot, sticky, rainy summers. Happy hunting !

We have the 233s as room was a big issue for us, lots of family that likes to pop in . When its just the three of us like the extra room of the third bunk. Hope you get what you need good luck

I have a Mini Lite 2306. Sleeps 6, if needed. My Nissan Armada is rated at 6500# and tows it well. X4 on the memory foam. Wouldn't sleep a wink without it.
