The trailer will be inky dinky and you will store stuff in it and have to take everything out to use it.

We have had three 13'ers (and still have two of them) and consider them to be "Just Right" for size and space.

And there are those that just plain prefer to conserve space, materials, fuel & $$$!

The only downside on most 13's and 16's is the lack of headroom. I'm 6'2" and my back ain't that great any more. I can't deal with walking around like Quasimodo without hurting in about two minutes. Lack of adequate headroom to stand up straight would be a definite deal breaker for me.

And, as mentioned earlier, we make use of the space under the bed for storage, it provides space for 6 covered bins for clothes, dry food and shoes.

And it's always easier to find a place to empty the Porta-Potty than a holding tank, even if one uses one of those tote tanks that also has to have a place to live when not being used.

But to each their own, we have tried both and prefer the extra space to the occasional convenience of a loo that takes up space even when it's not being used.
Actually, you picked the wrong Super Hero...hint, I'm from Metropolis!

There are options out there in that size range from what i've seen.... Parkliner 15' hitch to bumper w/6'4" headroom and usable front shower/potty.

Sounds good, but I don't think they were available then, back in 2008, when I bought the Casita. But it's nice to know someone else makes a smaller trailer for those of us who are more prone to banging our heads on things. There may have been others with adequate headroom but at that time, but the Casita 17 was the only one I fell for. I still love my trailer...oops!, sorry dear, you know I still love you more...lol

While reading through the PL back-story, i believe the interior height was on Chandler's (the PL designer) wish list as he is ~6'2" or so also.
