How important is size? It's critical for me. I pull the biggest trailer I can... a 13' Trillium. Smile. Unlike my neighbors, I don't have (and don't need) a dedicated tow vehicle that sits, along with a huge trailer, in my driveway all year. I have everything I need and at 23 mpg towing I can go where I want, when I want.
Yup... size is everything.

Ya know, in some of these pictures it looks as if some of the big boys laid an 'egg'. My little egg was comfortable enough for me compared to my friends gas guzzler.

You got it Donna. Wherever I am, even if I'm just washing it in the front yard, I get tour requests. I live on a busy road, and I've had people blast by at 60mph, turn around, and come back just to see it!

My wife and I just completed a driving trip, from TX. to Washington State and back During the trip we saw something that proves sizes doesn't matter.

We were in the State Park in Winchester, ID. and saw a 17' Casita in the spot reserved for the CAMP HOST. Soon a woman and man approched us as we sat in our car admiring the shiny Casita. We asked them about their Casita and they were proud to tell us that they had downsized a couple of years before. Althought this was there first time as a CAMP HOST, they were enjoying themselves, and had signed up to stay for two months.

As we saw in most State Parks, we visited, many camping spots have water and electric, but many don't have sewer hookups. Most people have the little blue tanks with wheels that they drain their black water tanks into, and lug them over to the dump sight. We have also noticed that the CAMP HOST spot has not only power and water, but sewer as well.

Being a CAMP HOST can be done in any size trailer. The town of Winchester is only a couple of miles from the State Park area, so stocking up on food and supplies shouldn't be a problem.

Small Campers can do almost anything a large camper can do except get you 4-5 MPG with your TV.

Hi: All... Here's pics of our first outing with our new/old combo. On Sun. morn the guy next door is asking if we have power...he didn't and his lights were just a glow. The breaking point was when his wife said "There's no water...the pump won't run"!!! They had so much stuff plugged into his outlets that he blew his converters two 40 amp. mains so had been running off the batteries. As newbies I had to help him with the diagnosis to prevent him from calling that $0& $0 that sold us this monster!!!

How interesting. I'm sure they appreciated your guidance. It used to be that when you went 'camping', you took a trip 'on the wild side'... 'back to nature'. Sleeping on hard, cold ground evolved to remote basic structures we called camps. Our interest is exploring other remote sites eventually led to pulling trailers with a few creature comforts. Today, many travel with sophisticated homes on wheels. Is that 'camping'? Perhaps a new term should be used? I chuckle when I think of the many people who may consider those living in mobile home parks as unfortunate by comparison. Those same folks think nothing of paying good money to park their RV's side by side, some within arms length, of other RV's in serviced 'resorts' so they can enjoy all the comforts of home while experiencing 'the great outdoors'. I know... to each their own. I travel alone because my wife wouldn't think of 'roughing' it. I don't know if she would go 'camping' even in one of 'those'. I don't mean to disparage those who's rig's and destination are different than mine. I'm actually a bit envious at times. Just thinking...
