Remodeled. AC, Stove, Refridgerator large back bed and bunk beds. New Tires and battery everything works great on this little gem will be getting in new decals . Located 1 hour north of Los Angeles. Overall weight is 950 lbs. pulled with my Nissian Altima Hybrid as well as my Subaru Outback.
Yes, vehicle towing weight limits has to be the first thing you do before you start looking
BTW: While base, bare bones, weight for a 13' Casita might be as low as stated, actual, "real world" weight, going down the road, will be more like 1400 lbs. Take a look in the General Chat forum for a table of real world weights.
Thank you for your tips! I have read some of the towing posts. I will be getting a new car capable of towing a minimum of 2,500 lbs. I have been referring to an online towing guide to find a used vehicle, here is the link: http://www.trailerlife.com/trailer-towing-guides/
A 13' may or may not fit in a garage. It really depends more on height than length (in some garages). If the axle has been changed, the trailer may be taller too. The only way you'll know if a particular trailer (not by brand) will fit, is to measure it. Good luck on your egg hunt.

In you search, here's a short list of sources to NOT trust on that topic, in no particular order:
1. Anyone working at a dealership, sales or service.
2. Anyone selling a used vehicle.
3. Anything posted on-line.
4. Secondary "Towing Guides".
5. Your cousins third husbands brother, Bubba.
List of sources to trust:
1. The owners manual for the exact vehicle you are looking at buying.
2. "That's All Folks"
That said, some of the sources in the first group can help guide you in a general direction, but always go to the 2nd group before any money changes hands.
The sale price is $6,500 she is clean and redone with no improvements that need to be made. All is in great working condition and she is ready to roll. Located between the cities of Bakersfield and Santa Clarita in the town of Frazier Park, CA. One hour and 10 from Los Angeles going north.
When measuring height, put a stick (a 4 ft level would be ideal) across the top of the vent dome (or highest items) to measure down to the ground. My first trailer fit through the garage door except for that little detail.....
[QUOTE=Enecher;509714]Hi. I am looking for my first fiberglass trailer. A smaller one that could fit in a garage, so, probably a 13 foot. Been a member here for years just learning, ready to go camping!
Have you measured the height of your garage door opening? That would be a good start and several here have found ways to effectively "Raise that bridge by lowering the river".

Good day Enecher... I have been researching cars and towing for decades. Some are much better than others and the specs/tow rating in many cases don't reflect actual performance. Henry's Nissan Altima, his Outback, and our Infiniti G35 are great choices just to name a few.
Let me know when you get to your short list and I can give you an opinion.
I have a 1977 b-1300 and am thinking of selling it soon because of storage costs...santa barbara ca...I have been towing it with a volvo v40 wagon with no problems...original , no water hooked up but has tank and sink , also has heater, propane stove, icebox, elec ac/dc, repainted interior...will post more pics soon
