Trailer: No Trailer Yet
Posts: 12
A friend has made a suggestion which I am seriously considering - putting in an RV gate. My house (and garage) may be small, but I have a large back yard. The fence originally did have a gate that could be opened wide; my landlord kept an old boat trailer back there when I first moved in many years ago (I've lived here forever, just about). He got rid of the boat trailer several years ago. When the fence needed replacing, he put in a regular size gate. I'm hoping, if I pay for it, that he would have no objection to my putting a wide gate back in again.

The area back there where his boat trailer was, and where my trailer would go, is gravel. Not pavement as my city code specifies but at least it's better than grass. I doubt anyone would complain - if they did, I'd have to deal with it. My company does offer RV storage on a back lot for a reasonable fee. So if worse comes to worse, there's a backup plan.

If I can put in that gate I can consider going up to 16 or 17 feet, though I do still have to keep a careful eye on weight since my TV is a Mazda Tribute. A side dinette isn't a must have on my list, but it would be nice. I love the chairs in the Casita Freedom layout. Can anyone tell me if they are comfortable? I know that means less sleeping capability but, it's only me and my dogs so that's not a problem for me. I haven't been able to find any other eggs offering a side dinette with chairs instead of a bench. Is the Freedom the only one like that?

Comfort is subjective. Some find the captains chairs very comfortable, others have pulled them out to put in bench seating.

OTOH: Scamp makes a side-dinette, bench seating. We've seen mods where the owners put in Captain-style chairs on the benches. I've got a very comfortable desk chair (that swivels), that I'd consider mounting in a trailer, if I had a side dinette model.... So see, bench or captain chair shouldn't be a deal breaker... you can change to what suits your needs/wants.
