Now that we are empty nesters, we are looking to get back into camping after selling our beloved Flagstaff a few years ago. Since it is just the two of us, and we would like a bathroom, and we are looking to tow with our Xterra, we are looking at the A214. I am concerned about the tongue weight though, the rating on the Xterra is 500#, and the A124 is 382#. I assume this is without a battery or full propane tanks. With the bulk of the storage space being in front, I am wondering what the realistic tongue weight is?
Also, since it is necessary to use a shower curtain, I am wondering if the hard shower walls can be left at home or if they are necessary?
