But, as others have experienced, perhaps the front bed will be just perfect.

That's always a possibility. The mental wheels are spinning....

That being said, closing off the back is likely easier than the front (much smaller opening), as you've already noted. The front could be doable, especially if you got some kind of child gate like you would use for a wide hallway, you could likely fashion brackets for the barrier.

As to the escape in the back, the newer (2009+) models have an escape window in the back, not just the "lift the bed" escape route.
BTW, how does your Sienna handle your 2720? We have an '04 Sienna, and am wondering whether it can handle a 2518 or 2619. I'm pretty conservative in towing. I don't like pushing things too much.

Depends on where you're going. 2004 is the same engine/etc as mine (2006). I go only on the flats in the Midwest (Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois/Indiana). For this area, the Sienna is pretty awesome. Great cargo space, no issues with towing. Very comfortable with this set up (good power, long wheelbase, enough capacity to tow TM + "stuff"), especially if you're looking at the 25-26 models.

If you're planning on towing in mountains or elevation, however, you'll probably benefit from something with more horsepower.

Thanks! Yes, we do have mountains not very far west of here. That has to be part of our consideration. I don't want to be confined to only going to the beach, which is east.
