Douglass...That's what I thought. They would be nice for one person kind of tight for two.

I actually got to take a peek in one that was for sale on a lot we had went to look at a Bigfoot on. Honestly I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of it. Nicely made and laid out well (if that is they type of travel trailer that meets your camping needs)



I think we actually have a new member here who recently purchased one. Hopefully they will see the post and comment.

Martha and Wolf will be at Lake Casitas with their Little Joe again this year.

I find that the Little Joe is very close to a Compact Jr. in size and layout. Its main difference is being full height vs. Pop-up top, although it is a little shorter in length.

Yes, I have liked the looks of the Little Joe & Ponderosa, even the Roughneck. But I never gotten to see one in person.

Seems they are very similar to the old Lite House. Lite House - Fiberglass RV Gallery

I have read in several places that Marty bought the Lite House molds when that company went out of business. A quick look at the picture supports this.
As you know the Lite House had smaller wheels inset into the body of the trailer. Though the Little Joe has larger outboard wheels, as you can see, the Lite House wheel wells are still there. It would have been nice if they had reworked the molds to allow more under seat storage, though the wife and I find the space adequate to our needs.
