How tall is your garage ceiling? Mine is 8' and I cannot figure how to stand it up. Does the tongue come off?I just ran across your pics of the Thule 1700 trailer. I bought my 1500 Thule trailer last year in April. I go camping in Texas where my children live. I have towed this trailer to texas 4 times already and it is the greatest thin since sliced bread. I pull this thing with my Honda Fit using a 1 1/4 in. Drawtite hitrc with riser hitch ball. I still get 30 MPG average even in the hill country.
This trailer pulls as though there was nothing behind me and this is a little car. 3 1/5 ft. wide and 5 ft. long. It stores in my garage sitting on its tail gate pegs. The 221 lb. weight is easy to handle. I would strongly recommend this to anyone. I hope you are enjoying your 1700 as much as I enjoy my 1500.
