Thanks Penney for your input. Sometimes it is more about perception than actual space. With a 14 yr old, a 7 y/o and a 6ft 280lb Hubby and myself at 5 ft and "average" weight
it will probably come down to what feels the largest and most open whether or not it actually is like you said. We would really prefer a larger model but dont want to stress our van or myself as I'm the one driving. Any idea why the Toyota Dealer advised against the airbags to level the load? I've read where lots of folks use them so I'm curious why it could be an issue. We too really want a bath model esp here in FL when the State Park bath houses are unairconditioned and it's 95 degrees outside with 95% humidity and it feels like you're stepping into a steam room. As soon as you get out of the shower and attempt to get dressed (with e'thing sticking to you) you feel like you need another shower. Or when we're "Walmart Camping" on the way to WY each summer we'd like a bathroom in the night. The more input we get the more we're leaning towards the 16' with a bath model. I told Hubby today that if we got the bigger trailer and we felt it was too much we could always sell it for probably close if not all of what we paid for it and get a smaller one. At least we tried and would know for sure. What hitch did you go with? I havent got my van tow ready yet. Down here in Fl there are not that many Eggs to see and be able to step in to. So far I've only been in a 17 ft Casita
and an Egg Camper
. We like the Egg Camper
but they only sleep 3 since they dont offer a bunk model. It did seem nice and open and bright for sure. I'm planning on attending Scamp
Camp down here in Feb so hopefully I'll see more makes/sizes in person then.
Keep the info coming, please!
Thanks so much for your "2 cents".
