Hi. I've only been pulling a fiberglass trailer for a few years. I'm a single female and I do fine. I do get occasional advise and a little assistance from other campers. I purchased a 13 ft. Casita
. The size is very nice to pull. I happen to think electric brakes
are very important, especially if your pulling with a smaller vehicle. They give you more control when stopping and also when slowing down. My Casita
has a toilet, gas burners, sink, electric fridge
. It probably be too small for your family with the toilet, since it takes up much of the front. If I had it too do over I probably would not get one with a toilet. Instead I would use a porta-potty. Just for the extra room. The smaller trailers without the separate bathrooms generally have an extra small table with seats that make into a single bed. Some of them also have a very small overhead bunk. Hope this helps. If you check the camping session on this forum you will see there are lots of campouts. Even in the winter. I suggest you go to a few to see the variety of trailers available to give you a better idea of what you want. Good luck. Happy camping.
