Hi,
Thank you for your prompt response! I am considering the Mini Lite ETC 185, the 1905 Mini or the Canyon Cat 15UD. I have a 2012 Toyota Highlander V6 with a dealer installed tow package and a rated 5000lbs towing capacity. I wonder if some has this combination and willing to help me choosing which RV and how this vehicle performs?

You might try posting your questions in the towing forum for feedback. I will warn you ahead of time that there can be a difference of opinions with what a sales person might tell you and what some of our experienced members will say. Sales staff often uses dry weight numbers but in real life you will be adding weight for items like food, people, supplies, etc.



PS
Here is a link for a sticky on towing.

Welcome oomar. I'm just up the road a piece in Roman Forest. That little Highlander won't be happy towing much, but someone on here with that vehicle will hopefully let you know more from experience. For sure you'll have to stay with the smaller campers.

Anyway, keep us informed and ask questions.

Howdy oomar. We're located west of you between San Antonio and Austin.

Also new here learning all we can; we pick up our TT late next week. Congratulations on the pending purchase.
