29CKV owners? What do you think?

Hubby and I are looking at a used xlr 29ckv. I'd love to hear from owners and their opinions. Would you buy that model again if you could do it all over again?

Second question...please don't dog us out! Our tow vehicle is a 2011 crew cab Sierra 1500. It has the max tow package and we can pull 9500 lbs. Payload is 1712. The tongue weight is 1300 lbs on the 29ckv. Dry weight on the 7300 lbs. I know, that is an estimation but I have start somewhere. We will be carrying a 600 lb bike. So it's going to be close on the towing capacity once we're loaded up.

A new tow vehicle is not going to possible for another year or so. This year we would likely be doing some weekend short trips and a couple of trips to the lake about 2 hrs away but mostly flat. We live ten minutes from a state park so it is appealing to load up every other weekend just to get out of the house and camp! Hubby is convinced that it would be fine until we can get a bigger tv, likely a F250.

Should we scratch this idea and look for a lighter TH or deal with it until a TV upgrade?
