Size of beds depends on which model you chose. My Casita has a King Size bed.

If your looking for a stand-up shower and a flush toilet and a very small trailer i know for sure that "Casita" makes a "13' Patriot Deluxe" that you can stand up in (5'10" inside height) ....Be sure to look at the "Deluxe" Model for the shower as the standard model has no shower....I'm not sure about "Scamp" 13' as someone else may be able to answer that question...... this is just a suggestion to help you along in your search.

I dont think anyone here is picking on teardrops, I'm pretty sure we all think they are really cool.
I was looking for a teardrop when I bumped in to my Burro. I knew there was a Casita ( I saw an old one at a Hamfest) but had no idea then about FB trailers until I saw the Burro.

We even discussed it overnight before buying it. A luxury that I don't think exists today. Now you have minutes to decide.

Scamp also has a 13' version with a Bathroom. I understand that the Standard version with fiberglass cabinets only provides for a toilet in the bathroom, while if you go for the optional Deluxe wood cabinet version, then a shower and bathroom sink are included.

I noticed that Casita's Patriot with the front full bathroom places the refridgerator next to the door in a separate cabinet, where Scamp's regular closet usually is. This makes the Patriot with a front bath like a mini-Liberty.

I noticed the Escape website says they will rent you a 16 so you can try it out. I know you can also rent Tabs at various places. That might be worthwhile if you are trying to decide between the two kinds of trailers.

I think rental is an excellent idea. While it may see like money down the drain after the trip is over, it would be a lot better to spend a week's rental than to take the loss of buying a new trailer and having to re-sell it at a loss, or spending time and money fixing up a used trailer which turns out to be unsuitable.

We rented a tent trailer for a week-long vacation trip, and learned that we were willing to tow a trailer, but did not want the tent (pop-up) type. Since I've seen tent trailers sell at one year old with two weekends of use for a couple thousand less than new, this turned out to be a good move.

Recently we are thinking of options again, and I'm surprised to see the range of RVs available for rent (at least in Western Canada) - from relatively small travel trailers to large Class A motorhomes, with truck campers thrown in as well. While I knew that the truck campers could be rented complete with the truck, it seems that a least one company rents their trailers complete with tow vehicle (large SUV), which makes sense to me since a renter is unlikely to have the right tug already.

Of course, anyone considering RV rental must watch the movie RV first... or maybe after, so they don't get scared off!

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

For giggles, see this Wikipedia for more info: Teardrop Trailer
That Wikipedia entry leads to a category listing for Recreational vehicles, which features [b]Fiberglass RV!

An important factor for me is to be "high and dry" AND having a place for the use of a portapotty (so we don't have to make that "midnight stroll").

Teardrops take care of "high and dry" but fail on the use of a portapotty.

Unless of course you're a contortionist.

When you start having to make that "midnight stroll", you no longer can be a contortionist either!!!

Although the new Trillium looks great, I solved that problem tent-camping with this:

Not sure I'd want to try it in a low-roofed teardrop, though.
