My Choice

As to the contest. I'd always take the most expensive trailer assuming I could sell it for the most.

I've now been in practically every trailer on the market and am certain we could camp happily in most any of them. Actually they are more similar than dissimilar.

As to the trailer I'd most like to own, it's one that meets our tow vehicle and travel needs. We have a small tow vehicle and that in part decides the size of our trailer, a Scamp 16. Our goal is a trailer that weighs less than 2500 pounds though we have towed a 2800 pound Casita 16. Since we don't have a truck it eliminates a fifth wheel.

As to our tavel needs, we are long distance travelers, traveling 6-10 months a year and have defined storage and long term comfort needs.
In general this requires modifications to the trailer. I simply believe fulltiming (virtual fulltiming in our case) requires a different solution.

As well gas mileage is a concern, our goal is plus 20 mpg (now at 23mpg). We see no where but increasing prices for fuel expenses.

Size is also a concern, too big means you can just drive in to a Dunkin Donuts or MacDonalds. Plus size can make it more difficult to handle, to clean, to park and so on. Ferry charges are higher for longer trailers and I've even found a campground that charges by length.

I will admit I just started reading the For Sale posts, and always feel inclined to buy something new or different. There are plenty of interesting rigs.

Oh well, it's nice to wonder if the grass is greener....
