New owner of 2013 Vibe

Hi.
My name is Nan and this past weekend downsized to a 2013 Vibe 6505.
I had a 28 ft and it was just to much for me to drag around.

Yes I bought used ands far I love it... small enough for me to handle, yet big enough..

I am open to any suggestions ...

The Vibes are light on tongue weight with a big storage area in rear.You need to load heavier items in front,using the storage compartment for lighter items. It helps to carry several gallons of water in your black tank since it is located in front of the axle.We have replaced the 3500 axle with a 4400lb one with 15 in rims and D rated tires.This has made a world of difference in towing.We do use an E2 hitch also.
