The Trillium 5500 is 90 inches wide.
The rear bead is 50 X 86.
Very rare trailer though.

I've been in an Escape 21, and 5.0TA - while they have more sq ft of hallway, longer hallway, and more storage (BY FAR), the EggCamper feels roomier and is more open that either mentioned in my opinion.

That being said - it will be too small once we retire for LONG trips! The 5.0TA may win long term just for storage and dinette reasons!
Yeah, they're pretty amazing little things. I think if they made a 19' version it would be a no-brainer!

WOW! That's quite a lot of space... too bad I haven't seen any for sale!

LilSnoozy's are about 6'6' wide on the interior. I'm 6'1" and could stand as well as stretch out fully across the bed. We are anxiously awaiting delivery on ours in the next couple of months!

Note on the Escape 21, the bed is an 80" long queen, mounted longitudinally rather than laterally.

There are some other advantages to having a narrow trailer and that is parking regulations. For instance in Seattle I can park my Campster on residential streets. The code says no vehicles on residential streets overnight if they are wider than 80". If needed I can then boondock in the city in a nice safe residential neighborhood. But if I had a wider RV then if I wanted to park it overnight I would either have to take it onto private property or park in industrial zoned areas.

So before you decide figure out where you might want to be parking it. If you are going to park along curbs remember it can be somewhat difficult to fit into a space with a wide trailer. There are always compromises to be made for decisions about what works best. But many people stay in RV parks or campgrounds so width is not an issue for overnight stays.

I'm curious if Seattle enforcement officers carry a holstered tape measure on their equipment belt?

A quick look at the lighting configuration on the rear will tell you if its over 6'8"

...also, you may need to use the aftermarket side mirrors to see past the wide trailer.

Part of the reason I went with Scamp was because of the wider aisle. I have found it very easy to move past others in it.

The homeowners on the street you park on have them
