Hi. I'm new here. I'm considering the purchase of a lightweight fiberglass travel trailer suitable for a 2004 Nissan Murano. Anyone have any suggestions? Many thanks.

Hi Roxanne
I moved your post here as more folks will read it. Hope you get answeres you want. I would also like to welcome you here.
I think your first step is too look in your car manual and find the tow rating for your vehicle. Once this is known then your choice of options open up.

Welcome to our happy home. If your Murano is rated for 3500lbs, as Google says, then very nearly any egg will work. Others will be more specific, I'm sure.

What do you need in the way of an egg -- how many people to sleep inside; what type of camping do you like?

Plotting my next adventures...

I considered a Murano when looking to purchase a new tow vehicle. It's a great and comfortable rig. My pet packing needs eliminated it, however.

You are can consider all but the largest eggs with it. (17 or over) That said, you have only your needs to consider! You can have a bath model, with all the trimmins, or a bare bones 13 for just the basics.

As already asked.. what is it you need, followed by what is it you WANT? Have a snoop through our Albums and get an idea of what style suits you.

If you want NEW, you are in Texas, and Casita would be the first to look at for ease of acquisition.. they make 13s, but not very many.. 16 and 17 foot models have several different configurations. Once again, have a look at the albums.
