    I think I'm in love.... At least I'm interested that a new style of popup has been made.

    If Trail manors were cheaper I would have bought one for sure. I saw one about six years ago at an RV show however the price tag about killed me. I couldn’t find any used where I lived that still wasn’t upwards of $10k.

    @Halford. The one I was looking at 6 years ago at the RV show was about $33k. The larger one was I think $35k if I remember correctly.

    We are on our second TM, we upsized.. They have been around for 45 years with many changes from the original design. Unlike our canvas popups, it's nice and warm in the winter, or should I say less drafts. Tows greats with our Sienna and now with our Highlander, fits in the garage.

    No way should these be towed with a minivan. From what Ive seen even the smallest ones are around 3100lbs with close to 400lbs TW. Definately not a mini-van towable camper.

    There are many people that tow tm's with minivans that are rated with 3,500 or more tow capacity. As mentione before we towed 2720 for 4 years. We did add rear air bags. Towed an average of over 4,000 miles a year.

    My 2720 was 2870 dry weight, about 300 lbs TW

    Is the dry weight the actual weight that your van towed? Wow! If so your TM must be bare inside, with nothing inside! That would be amazing adventure without any food, cookware, clothing, hoses and etc.

    Now you see why dry weight shouldn't be mentioned here. What is the GVWR for TM? I looked up and it is 3500 lbs GVWR. The Max Tow weight allowed for van is 3500 lbs. that leaves no room for passenger, or stuff in the van. I foolishly towed with my old Explorer which did not have the tow package for 5 years and it messed up the transmission even though I did maintenance on it. I learned my lesson in the hard way and do not want anyone to do what I did (and several people here, too). I am careful with my 2014 Ford Explorer with factory installed tow package so I can keep it for many years. Your Highlander is the better TV and that is good TV to tow your TM anywhere.
