New to site, need a little advice...

My wife and I are looking for a small, 13-16 ft. trailer to tow with a minivan or possibly a small pickup truck but we're not sure what size to get. We're most interested in the Scamp and Casita's so far. Both factories are quite a drive away. Is there anyone in the SW Ohio area that would allow us to look at their trailer to get an idea of the size, inside space, etc...? We are in Dayton. Also, are the various gatherings good places to look at the trailers or would that be intruding? I saw there was one coming to Caesar's Creek next month. Thanks for any info you can give.

A fiberglass trailer owner is used to being questioned about their trailer and usually enjoy showing their trailers.
I'm in California but I am sure you would be very welcome at Caesar's Creek.
I have a 16" Scamp with the side dinette and pull it with an 07 Toyota Tacoma 4 cyl.
The side dinette is great if your lazy like me and like to keep the bed made up all the time and still have a table to eat at.
If you call the manufacturers they will help you locate a trailer in your area to look at.
You can't go wrong with either a Scamp or Casita.
Good luck,

Please note that the quoted trailer lengths are from rear bumper to trailer hitch....thus, our 17 foot Casita has only about a 14 foot long "cabin" (living space).

I live in Dayton

I live in Dayton and have a 13 ft Trillium and U-haul that you may come see. I sent you a Private Message. I was also fortunate to find 2 U-hauls for sale today as well, look under referrals. I might be able to lead you to a 13 Ft Trillium I seen earlier this week as well, not sure it is for sale but I got mine by stopping and asking. Give me a call.
