I'm new to this forum and could use some input. My situation is this:
I'm retired and decided to spend time exploring the USA. I have a new Jeep Patriot with a tow capacity of 2000 lbs. with an engine oil cooler installed. The Jeep has less than 2000 miles on it so trading it in is not an option. I'm 6'2" tall and don't want to stoop down in the trailer. Ideally, I would like to be able to have a dinette so I don't have to make a bed every night and I would also like a shower and toilet.
So far the closest trailer I've found to fit the bill is the Scamp
13' but I would need to make the bed every night and I'm not sure that a 13' trailer wouldn't close in on me during an extended trip. The Scamp
16' meets all the requirements but I'm afraid when all is said and done including tongue weight
and gear, I would be over the 2000 lb. limit.
I've owned larger trailers, motor homes and 5th wheels in the past so I'm not completely new to the RV world but I am new to this situation.
There may not be any any good answer to my situation but I would appreciate any input you could give me.
Thanks in advance for your help.
