Unhappy

Nix to that 15'. It is factory listed at 1600#. Our Trillium weight is listed at 1450# however when we weighed ours, admittedly with some of our things in it, it scaled 1700#. We tow it just fine with our 2000# capacity 2000 Subaru Outback. We won't win any drag races while towing it, but that is not where it is at. We have always been minimalists, moving up to eggs from tent camping. We also don't have a furnace, refrigerator, nor A/C. We haven't filled the fresh water tank, but judging by the taste of the water at most campsites, I think that may change. But we won't carry the whole 12 gallons, (100#). I do think the Trillium is a scooch lighter than the Escape because of the wood interiors in the Escape, however, I don't know the status of TRV, Ltd as of this date, since Escape and Trillium parted ways July 1st, as detailed in another thread in this blog.

PS: I am just under 6' and stand quite comfortably in our Trillium whilst cooking or doing dishes. We also sleep together quite easily in the "large" bunk and eat at the small table in the front. We love our 'Homelet.'

Well the Trillium is the winner! Now just to find the right one? We took a 1300 up camping on our Thanksgiving long weekend. It was COLD but dry (at least) and we were all warm and toasty in the little trailer. I have to include some pictures. I think both the dog and the campground voted for the Trillium. (you'll see what I mean)

Never had a dog before that liked clothes, but without his jammies on, none of us gets any sleep. And he won't go out in the rain without his rain-coat. He hasn't asked for shoes yet though...
