I'm considering the purchase of a Trophy 1802. My limitation in my tow vehicle is a 2006 Toyota Sienna minivan with a tow limit of 3500 lbs. The 1802 is within that limit, but a friend said that only applies to towing on a roadway. He doesn't think I'll be able to pull the boat out of the water after putting it back on the trailer.

HELP. Does anyone have any experience or thoughts?

your friend is right. dont try it.  you need to be at most trailering 80% of your vehicals max rating for towing a boat.  also, dont forget about the weight of the gas and gear in the boat and the people in the mini van.  also, if the mini van is front wheel drive you are not going to get traction on a ramp.  i hope this helps, i have been trailering boats for over 15 years, and seen simmilar problems from under powered and FWD cars a lot.
