One question I have is why would you get turned away with your 13ft. if you are paying the same as everyone else to park ?
IMHO the only reason is the snob factor! We once were turned away from a private park on the coast while driving a new 22' motorhome... had to be over 25' to get into that park... ended up heading down the road and found a great spot, so nice we stayed an extra day.

Nice rear end, Donna.
I agree, it is cute and and trim, like slim cool light beige summer slacks.

PS Can we please get a smiley face representing the SECOND warm day of earliest summer, the day after looking for those straight pressed comfy off-white pants of summer.

Cute is a relative term and strictly in the eye of the beholder. I suppose my 16' trailer would lose the cute factor if parked next to a 13 footer...but ask yourself...in the picture below...which one won the cute factor ?

Aw shucks, Gina. The trailer is only half of the cuteness factor. (Know what I mean? Wink! Wink!, Nudge! Nudge!)

"we all have to start somewhere", what a fool!! I would love to see what he pulls and the gas bill that comes with it. Oh the arrogance of some people. With my 13 foot scamp in tow, I proudly drive with my head held high!

Our Burro might have been "cuter" than our 16' UHaul, but I just packed the UHaul for the Nauvoo trip. I do believe that there was more space to stow things in the Burro too. I miss the space under the sink. Or maybe it is just that we have a furnace below the closet and put the microwave inside the closet in the UHaul, unlike the Burro where we stuffed the closet full. In the Burro, I just used the space under the sink for the hand vacuum and cords. I just hope that there is still space under some seat. 'Course, some of that space under seats that we had in the Burro is taken by the hot water heater that I will enjoy for showers in the UHaul.

So much for using Google to check word usage.

Daguerreotype, or sometimes daguerrotype.

Cuteness is relative to the competition. If we are in a little state park with lots of tents and pop-ups around, we look pretty upscale. Last week, we spent a night just outside Memphis in an RV Park. About 90% of the rigs were gigantic, titanic, behemoth, diesel motor homes. The rest were fifth-wheels that must have had football fields inside them. Our ten-year old 21' Bigfoot looked like a little lost orphaned kitty. "Cute" (as in "We feel sorry for you in that pitiful little thing"). A couple with a pop-up cruised through, which raised our hopes of redemption. But they wisely got the hell out of there, leaving us to suffer alone. I am sure the wife of the guy with the pop-up refused to be at the bottom of the food chain. My wife Nancy used to comment on this when we had the 17' Casita parked with the Godzilla rigs. Getting a trailer four feet longer has not made a dent. Ten feet longer would still not compete. And if you don't have at least three slide-outs, you really should just not show yourself in daylight.

Gina, take your 17' and go to a high-end "RV Resort" sometime. You'll be cuter than the Gerber baby.

Recently we went to a park with full of huge Rv's. They all sat on the hill over looking us. there were three of us too small to join them on the hill, a pop-up attached to a motorcycle, a Tab and us.... (we felt a little large beside our immediate neighbours, but they forgave us ;-)) So we stayed at the bottom of the hill.... on the LAKE....alas if we weren't careful we might have gotten our feet wet!

Jen

ps The couple in the Tab loved our Escape, they had never seen one before and just loved the size and sensible design. They had owned several trailers before - all bigger and kept moving down rather than up.

Having just spent the first weekend in our new UHaul, I do not mind giving up the "cuteness" of our smaller Burro. The bed was bigger and I slept like a baby, instead of waking several times a night with leg cramps. The butt bumping factor was greatly reduced; there was room for both of us in the trailor. And having a bathroom was great. And besides, the bigger UHaul is cute too.
