Yes, Bob, I have. We were in the county park just outside of Charleston, SC and noticed this realllly tiny camper. The very friendly owner, who was from Ontario, was travelling in it solo and she was happy to let us see inside.
I was quite impressed by how compact it was yet how large her bed was!!

The back opening door has its pros and cons, to be sure. But she was extremely happy with it.

Little Joe

There was a Little Joe at the Wine Escape Rally at Niagara Falls in 2016. They are pretty neat. The owner was happy with it.

littlle joes

seems they started out for use by utility companies and went into the camper field.

I don't know if they have a notch here or not but sure interesting!

We have a number of forum members with Weiscraft Little Joes as well as the older and similar Lite House trailers.

Surprisingly, they are nearly as heavy as a basic Scamp in spite of being 18" narrower. I suspect that's an indication of their roots as commercial trailers. They are commonly used as mobile work stations for repairing fiber optic cables, among other things.

I've read where people want these type/brands of trailers because they're narrow and the prospective owners have limited parking. They're forgetting the body sits inside the wheels, not over. Tire track is important when measuring

This is from a March 31, 2015 article in Trailer Life. Have you ever known them to go down in price

Likely not...

I think that Ponderosa is the fully loaded model, from what I have seen.
