Thanks for all the feedback. Trailwest Campster
has been added to the search list.
My frame is 5x8, but it is shaped like this # with the 5 ft demension sticking out 6" on
either side. I think with a little finageling I should be able to get it through any door
that is intended for humans to pass through.
I considered the truck camper idea. I have seen one where there were storage bins on
both sides, where the wheel wells would be in a truck bed. Nice set-up, but yes it was
high on the ugly meter. And it probably is more trailer than I really need. I don't about
other parts of the country, but here in the south it seems like those older truck campers
are really cheap. On the other hand, the flatbed trailers are expensive. I'll consider this
my last option.
As for fiberglass utility trailers, it seems that the best looking ones are the enclosed
motorcycle trailers. There are some that have a fold-down cot inside. This may be the
way to go. I could get one of those screen canopies that are used for the back of SUVs
and I'd be all set. There are a couple of these that I will look at this weekend.
Neither one of these has the cool factor of one of the classic fiberglass RV trailers, though,
and I I may just hold out for a Compact Jr, Compact II, LiteHouse, or Campster
Hi Folks, my first post here.
I am looking for a smallish trailer with the entry door at the rear. So far I know of the Lite House and the Compact Jr / II but I don't know of any others. Why? I do primitive skills demonstrations and I need to be able to carry a 8 x 5 frame made of 2x4s in the trailer. This works best with a rear door.
So, my question is two-fold. 1) Are there any other brands I should be looking for? 2) Are there any of these out there in, especially in the southeast? I looked at a Compact Jr in Murphy, NC last weekend, but the price was a little high for what he had.
Thanks for your input.
