Trailer: 84 16 ft Scamp

The Lil Snoozy would rate high on the 'coolness' scale -- and with it's two-layer insulated fiberglass shell, that is a definite plus, as is the queen size bed, especially for a couple. For our use the lack of full cooking facilities would not please my wife, since she loves to cook. But that is just us, I'm sure and I expect most would be fine with the unit as is.

One trailer that wasn't mentioned, at least to my quick read-through, that may work well for a single full-timer might be a 17 to 19 ft Bigfoot. They are a bit more expensive, somewhat heavier, but very well made and well appointed. My parents had a 5th wheel version some years ago, perhaps 19 or 20 ft. It was a really nice upgrade from the 13 ft Scamp they previously had.

However some years later when they were no long able for trailer touring/camping I asked my Dad which trailer/motorhome of the many they had over the years he liked the best. His answer was the 13 ft Scamp that he towed with an old Toyota pickup. I asked what they did about showers and that sort of thing. His answer was, the money I saved traveling with the Scamp allowed us to buy a night or two a week at a nice motel when we were on-the-move and not using full facility campgrounds.

Yep! He'd be in his mid 90's had his health not failed. Not surprisingly I have similar opinions, and I'd love to bounce some ideas across his brain again.

Sounds like you have inherited some of your dad's traits, Mark Twain said, "it seems the older I get, the smarter my parents become"

If so, I'm interested in your impressions.
Or did you post them elsewhere, and I just missed them???
I've been gone for awhile...


I didn't make it there. Many of those I was going to visit enroute had to change their plans so didn't make it. Also as someone mentioned I have also taken a new direction for a few months and am going on a mission trip to the Philippines. Once I return I will start my quest again.

I do wish I would have been able to make it as I was leaning heavily towards the Lil Snoozy. May still. Only time will tell.
