It depends on what you do in the trailer -- if you mostly sleep in it but do all your cooking and eating outside, it's height isn't very important.
In my case, I prefer to cook and eat inside, away from the yellowjackets. I also wash up the dishes inside, and really don't like to have to keep my head ducked all that time. If you want to shower, it's no fun at all if you can't straighten up.
I wanted a trailer tall enough for me to stand up in, with one big bed for me and my wife, but otherwise very small and lightweight. That meant I gave up any idea of a bathroom and shower, because they add substantial weight
in the various holding tanks.
I really like the Compact Jr because it fits my needs well. It has a pop-top "skull ridge" the full length of the trailer. The door is in the center of the back, so once I duck under the door jamb I can stand up straight. The dinnette is 6' long and easily seats 6 people. It makes up into a 71"x72" bed -- something which I will modify soon so MY half is longer.
If you want a shower and/or toilet the Compact Jr, or it's cousins, the Compact II, Hunter II, Trails West Campster
, etc. are not for you. But if you don't need them, then you might consider a trailer with a little poptop for head clearance.

As you look at the second link, notice the pictures in the avatars -- you will see the Compact II, the Campster
, and others.
I would point you to the photo album that shows you all the different kinds of trailers but it seems to be not working at the moment.
is not an issue for you, you could get a HiLo trailer with full bath and lots of other features. They pop up on CraigsList from time to time and the prices aren't too bad. It's just hard to find one under 19' -- most people want larger trailers.
Also, don't give up on finding a Burro
if that's what you want -- just be willing to drive several hours once you find one. They DO show up from time to time.
