A213HW

We have a Rockwood A122. Like it a lot.

We would like to purchase the new A213HW, but are concerned it will be more difficult to tow and our mpg will suffer.

Anyone have an opinion about this. We are really impressed by the 213.

it would help if you posted your TV and its specs.

My TV is a 2006 Honda Pilot. It is rated to tow a trailer 3500 lbs.or 4500 lbs if it is a boat.

That's with the factory tow package.

Does yours have it?
That would include Type III/IV receiver, pre-wiring for brake controller, trans cooler and 7 pin Bargma n connector.

We just purchased a Flagstaff T19QBHW two weeks ago. I think it's similar to the one you're looking at. We added a break box to the hitch for our Jeep Commander. Can't tell its behind us. Love the new camper...much better than a pop up. We can Winter camp now.

Depends on the "other weights"

with those being passenger and cargo weights.

The newer model is neat, but I like the A122.
You can put a weekend portapotti under the same seat and slide it out when needed.

Do a google search on "towing with Honda Pilot" and read the stories, pro and con. This is a marginal area that depends on circumstances, including terrain.

Good luck!

We don't have an area for the potty. We place it inside the entry area after we lock the door. Then remove it in the morning. We do mostly primitive camping with no hook ups so its not a problem. Bringing off the ground and easy setup, storing in the garage was our big thing. Having full hook ups has also been very nice. With the heated mattress.

I know not everyone can put their A-Frame inside their garage, but prefer to. We went with the longer one because of the permanent bed size and the table and Hardside bathroom. My husband prefers using our garage for the vehicles and would rather rent storage for the trailer. When we had popups we did use our garage. It's worth having storage because of living in very humid conditions, plus we cover AF which keeps it from gathering dust on the inside. Click image for larger version
