Hi there "The Pair"; I recently joined this forum and have been looking for a 26 or 27' TM since last fall. My wife nor I have any experience camping, but have decided now that we are semi-retired we are going to give it a go. My camping experience consists of pinning two blankets together and camping on the ground down in the valley on our farm as a kid. My question to you is specific to your Sienna (have the same); is the hitch that you use (recommend) straight, dropped, or other. I have been searching the archives, but have come up blank. Hope I am doing this posting thing properly. Thnx

The best hitch for my model year when I researched it was the Curt Class III hitch. I went to etrailer.com to figure out the proper model for my van. Round tube, fits great, and there's a little curve/bend to it that gives it maximal clearance when installed. I then chose a WDH system that had straight bars (trunnion style) over the round bars, because there's more ground clearance (see a trend here? ) I've posted the exact model in the past, somewhere on the boards, can probably find it if you can't. I set the WDH drawbar/ball to its highest (tallest) setting, and started from there -- iirc, that worked fine. The rest was just fine-tuning the setup, which anyone would have to do.

That help?
