Ah. Mine was in the body of the popup. I don't think I've ever seen a crank that far away from the camper body.

Check out the Andersen WDH system. You can get chain extensions that would get the brackets past the tank tray. Best of luck.

I took a measurement last night, it didn't seem enough to open up the notches for WDH mounting even having the tanks & tray against the deck railing. if it were a single tank, it could be possible to have tank siting in the middle and cut the tray out at the notches location or replaced with a single tank tray. but I am hesitate to get rid of one tank as it makes life much easier to have two tanks. another option is to have both tanks & tray relocated to the front deck.

I had the same issue with the blue ox. I only have one tank, but I took it off and set up the WDH mount. The corner of the tank sat on that. I added a small plastic piece on the opposite side. I notched it, so the tank rim sits tight in the plastic piece. Then I tightened it down. And it has been good to go and hasn't moved over the last 1000 miles. Good luck.

just want to give a update.

I have installed air lift 1000, it raises up the rear of the car about 2"-3" which makes big difference to minimize the potential bottom-out.

Last weekend, we went camping in mountains for 4 days, towing was great even through mountain uphills, slow for sure, but do not notice that much difference, Sienna power seems just fine.

During the camping, I was not happy for the grey water drain design, there are two grey water connections, one for sink and another one for shower, they are separately located on different side of the trailer. After checked other threads, I made a modification yesterday, tied the two drain connections together. will try out next weekend when we are out for camping trip. Below are how they look before and after.

Nice mods, did basically the same thing on my 228 BH. Getting mine ready for trip in 4 weeks.

Glad all you towing questions figured out and it all worked out for you.

Did you get a WDH or are the air bags enough?

No WDH yet, air bags seem enough. Will see after couple trips more.

Don't forget to take your setup to a CAT scale to see your actual weights when ready to camp, all 5 passengers onboard and a full tank of gas in the Sienna. I'm pretty sure you'll be over your GVWR but by how much? It's a Toyota so it's built well but just make sure you're not overweight by too much. As I said in my earlier post, my '05 Sienna did fine with a similar setup.

Have fun!
