Trailer: Eriba Triton now - ex U-Haul, Boler owner

That's one of the reasons I became so interested in the German Eriba trailers - they usually have the bed running lengthwise. In my two fiberglass trailers (Boler and U-Haul) the wife always claimed the forward edge of the bed since she seems to have to get up more times during the night. This forced me to the back of the bed where the curved sides of the trailer forced me to have to curl up to sleep since I'm right at 6 feet tall.

I looked at the Casitas because of their bed configuration but like the interior of my Eriba better. The bed on my Triton is about 77" x 77" so we can sleep lengthwise with plenty of room for the Standard Poodle too.

A Tear Drop trailer has a large bed and with door on each side you don't have to crawl over. Also, the bed runs length wise.

My favorite non Trillium trailer is a front kitchen Surfside, with a king sized bed. Sort of like a big Urba Puck. Sleep in it side to side, or front to back. Not much difference.

I also looked at a 17 foot Fiberstream that had a rear mounted kitchen and a huge front bed - I should have bought that one but didn't have a suitable tow vehicle at the time since they weigh around 2500 lbs. Nice trailers though with lots of room.

The Mity-Lite is that way too!! It's great not having to crawl over someone in the middle of the night.
