Trailer Sizes

A few years ago there was a poll about trailer sizes. I'm wonder if the sizes people have has changed much. So here's today's poll.

We're pretty happy with what we've got. The bed's a little small, especially when the golden retriever decides she's had enough of the floor. Next time maybe we'll get a Shih tzu. I've had my eye out for a 15' as a project trailer because my project list is down to less than 5 years ..... Raz

We have a 16 Scamp. I like the size of the 13 because you can haul it with a lighter and more efficient tow vehicle, but then I also like the Scamp 19 because of the extra room. Guess the 16 is a good compromise.

Mines a 13 foot Scamp no bathroom, currently we camp 3 to 7 days at a stretch and works extremely well for us. 2 adults and the dog that runs the place.

13' Scamp, purchased new in 2011. Just the basics; icebox, heater, porta pottie. Simple to care for, simple to tow, cute as a button! Perfect for 2 to enjoy "elevated camping"!

We are trailer junkies. For rough road rock hunting we use our 94 Vanabond, for short weekends we use our Bigfoot 21RB, for long trips where we stay a week we use our 25ft HR Alumscape, for overnighters we use our 13ft ECO with bathroom, our 13ft Boler is guest quarters.

Scamp 13 with front bunks suits just fine. We usually go for 1 to 3 weeks at a time. The 2 of us and the 2 dogs. Life couldn't get much better.

Our Scamp 13D front bath is named "Eggy-Sue" (the pull-it surprize).
Perhaps we should have named her "Mary Poppins" since she is "practically perfect in everyway"....


Practically Perfect - Mary Poppins (The Broadway Musical) - YouTube

I can often hear the trailing echo of this song as I pull "Eggy-Sue" along the road.

If it it were not for this trailer we would not own a travel trailer!

Scamp 16, about to trade up to a Scamp 19. Deeply conflicted whether to go for the deluxe for the front bath, huge refri and all the cabinets, or the standard for the front bunk for kids.

Im happy with my ParkLiner15, and could live in the space...but I think in the way future when I retire and drive off into the sunset I want an Escape 5.0 for the separate bedroom area...and I hear 5th wheels are real easy to tow!

I use both 13 boler and 15 trillium both tow behind my ridgeline with little difference . The main difference to me is not the length but the width a couple extra inches wider makes a big difference to someone over 6 feet tall plus my wife always tells me it's not the length that matters its the width lol

With a trailer name like "eggy-sue" I thought you'd be a Buddy Holly fan.
