took a look at the roos and the r pods. I am not sold on the pop out tent style at the end of the roos. I think I am kind of looking at something that is all enclosed. The most people we will have is 3,,when my wife decides to go with us. The rockwood mini light looks similar to the wildwood x-lite but with a different exterior. I plan on going this week to look at some at a local dealer. My budget is also kind of low. Would like to stay in the 10k range. That is what sparked my interest with the wildwood that I linked to. The dealer is only about 40 minutes from me.
Do you think I will any problems towing a trailer around 3-3500k with my ridgeline? I already have an electric brake set up for my 12 ft enclosed work trailer.

Check out the Micro Lite series. I have the 21FBRS that weighs just under 3,700 lbs but they make one a little smaller. It is a great camper for the size and price.

Take a look at forest rivers website and the flagstaff micro lite and rockwood mini lite floor plans.

I'd stay closer to 3,000 lbs.

We tow the aforementioned Mini Lite 2306 with our Ridgeline. No worries whatsoever and we are more like 3800-4000# depending on where we're headed. Strongly suggest you research and post to the Ridgeline Owners Club forum. The Ridgeline is an exceptionally capable tow vehicle and your target weight is well within it's limits. You'll want to add some towing mirrors.

Brought home the 185bh model today. It was really windy and had some side to side motion but overall pulled great. I may look into a good weight distribution/anti sway.

Sitting in it now looking over the manuals. Went to Walmart and got an adapter to plug it into an outlet to charge battery and check out ac and fridge.

Get a full size spare for your Ridgeline just in case of flat. Buy a steel wheel off of an RT model- about 100 bucks on eBay & then buy a economically challanged tire like a Hankook. You can't tow anything when you are on a temp spare!
