What year is your CRV? thnxs
Mostly flat lands, not much in the way of mountains here on PEI! Though the eventual plan is touring off-island with it....then there will be hills

Sounds good Bee. I have been to the east coast many. many times. I recall one good climb on the Cabot Trail but not much like the West Coast mountains.

On Edit... We did a very steep climb going up to Stowe Vermont a few years ago. We were towing our 2,500 Coleman pop up with a 150HP Nissan mini van. It was a 1st gear climb.

This makes me very sad and yeah... kinda angry for you The Jubilee is a special Trillium. If you decide to trade, make certain you are getting value-for-value... whatever that means for YOU.

Best of luck!

Take it from an Old Hand...those who disseminate "information" only by Private Message generally do so in order to avoid the possibility of contradiction by others just as- or even more- experienced but with different perspectives.

I myself am vaguely insulted by such messages- it's as if I'm being told not to bother getting a range of opinions since I'm not bright enough to sift through them and make a decision on my own-?

And, keep in mind, that, on the web, you can find a site or an opinion somewhere to support whatever position you hold on whatever subject you can conceive.

PS.... My PM quota is almost maxed out at 97%. So many folks sending notes and asking questions. Guess I need to do a purge. Can't wait for some more mail.

A little too much abbreviating of my post there, Dubya...and I hope you don't think I was talking about you. You're very forthright about posting your views for all to see. I specifically referred to:

P.M.'s have their uses...substitute for open discussion doesn't seem to me to be one of them, especially when utilized by those who never/rarely post in the open at all.

Nope, was just given a contact! And it's a contact that posts regularly.... They only told me what they did with their CRV....then gave me the name of a tow/trailer company CanAm to contact and find further info specifically to help me make some decisions based on what I have.

Thanks for the warning though Francesca!

I heard people complaining too much about....trailer vs towing vehicles. My advice is...FOLLOWING SPECS. OF YOUR VEHICLE then everything will be alright. Just got back from camping, same little towing vehicle, same Trillium 1300, cruising hws and enjoy out-door campings without...any problem. This is NOT the first year/ first time and my Trillium had extensive frame/interior modifications( heavier than original design). Yet, it carried this time...3 bicycles inside-last year 5 bicycles-. Photos tell BETTER. Cheer....
