This site used to be very helpful... when and why did it start to go down hill
Here is my take
Opinions are like A/-holes everyone has one
Let’s all return to our normal programming

I guess that's your opinion.
How do you propose that the site return to your version of a helpful site?

Yep. I'm waiting to hear why we can't have an opinion.

The issue isn’t opinions more like the tone and negativity that is being used on occasions

I would guess that doesn't make sense to you. Let explain. Since both of us are retired everyday is just like a Saturday used to .

You made the point that everyday was Saturday and I get it. Just wanted to remind you of that.

Being yelled at with jumbled capitalized word spray, cracks me up, and is so not Saturday.

Peace.

Some want a FGRV for the exact reason that they were advertised as small, lightweight, easy to tow with a smaller car.
I have one for that reason so that I could tow with my VW TDI Sportwagen. It did OK, but then they were recalled I bought a 2016 Town and Country that get 28 MPG highway, 22 around town and 16 mpg towing the 16' Scamp (heavy).
I don't want to drive a truck all the time or for that matter any of the time.
The T&C calls for a WDH over 1800 lbs and the factory hitch is designed for the load.
It handled better and safer with the WDH and since I use a light weight Reese Mini 350 anti-sway is an integral part of the hitch. If you know how ti use it is is not so bad to hook up and remove.
The T&C has trailer stabilization that also makes the rig safer See the You Tube below.
It is different strokes for different folks.
We just finished out long two month tour of Yellowstone and points in between and had absolutely no issues over the 9300 miles traveled.
The new vehicles, with the stabilization are probably far safer that the older one without.
Make sure that the one you get has ALL of the factory tow packages as many manufacturers systems can only be included at the factory during programming during the build.
The Fords come to mind as an example. These systems are due to the requirements from the European Union for towing there. Manufacturers who sell into both the North American zone and Europe are the ones with the most systems in their cars and trucks.
Often when you add a hitch to a vehicle without the factory system they are limited to much less weight than the full system.

JD,
That stability control looks like a very good option. Interesting that the EU requirements are driving the market. Do you have the Pentastar V-6?

Yes the Pentastar V6 is the only engine offered in the van

That engine is the only V6 in the whole Chrysler lineup.
Truck, car, jeep, etc.
