Thanks again for all your help, we bought an 07' w/15000 on the clock, ordered a blue ox baseplate from RV Upgrades today, already have a new Aladdin tow bar & have taken off the SMI stay-n-play & will start installing this weekend.Guess i'll have to change my signature.

Fred, Given the amount of time you are going to dedicate to installing the Stay-In-Play(SIP) consider if you will calling SMI and ask for Brent or Peter. Tell him 1st that you are an iRV2 member. Tell him you got a new car and ask him is there is a program or upgrade path so you can get a DUO. Believe me - it's where you want to be!

I know that you can re-use the brake cylinder and that component is one of the more expensive pieces of the product. I believe that your SIP can be rebuilt to be a SIP-DUO.

DriVer, it sounds like you're about the same size as me(just right that is ) and I'm surprised that you fit fine in the Vue. We had the seat all the way back, even the sales rep checked and though I could get in, my right leg was not at a comfortable position while using the gas and brake peddles. I was amazed at how much leg room I had in the CR-V and I didn't even have to have the seat pushed all the way back to the limit! I will check out the Vue again when I get a chance based on your response. Maybe something was preventing the seat from going back further that neither I nor the sales rep noticed.
