That really nails it!
The Sienna tows fine over the road for our distances and pulls at two (2) of the three ramps we use without the least bit of strain or drama. It's just that at one of those, we really have to get the back end of the van into the water--tail pipe is under as is the bumper.
Even getting in/out of the driver's seat means getting wet and we still
have to power launch, which is the part I don't love. Of course, an inboard just makes it that much harder given the height off the ground to clear the prop.
