Looking for flat top Boler; Cadet; Perris Pacer 13; or similar

Hi, I am looking for any small travel trailer with a max exterior height of 6'10".
For example, Cadet; Perris Pacer; R vision Cassett; possibly flat top Boler?
I'm in California but will pay to have it shipped if necessary. I'm looking to spend $4000. to $10,000 depending on condition. Thank you for offers to sell or any other suggestions.
Janette

Would you consider a pop-top fiberglass unit such as a Hunter Compact or a Trails West Campster?

Here's one just posted in CA:
1972 13 Compact Jr Fiberglass Trailer | Napa county, CA | Fiberglass RV's For Sale

LATE THOUGHT: If this is about garageability, there are ways of shoehorning regular-height Scamps and Bolers through standard 7' garage doors. Several forum members replace the stock wheels with tiny 8" wheels (with or without tires) for storage.

Yes. Thank you. I will start looking into these as well! Unfortunately my garage door height is at most 6'11". I do need to be able to keep the trailer in the garage due to HOA

A number of folks have used a smaller set of tires or just a small bare rim to drop it down for clearance into the garage. The doc center will have posts on doing this.

That's pretty typical. The door steals an inch or two from a standard 7' opening. Still, you may have more choices than you think. If you are willing to do the wheel swap thing, trolley-roof Bolers and pre-fire Scamps (made before 01/06) will quite possibly fit, assuming they have the standard suspension height and no roof adds.

Of course, the Hunters and Campsters will back right in without any fuss, an advantage when you get home from a weekend trip tired and after dark.

If you don't mind changing tires the 8" wheel and tire assembly allows me to park in my garage which in 6' 10" without any problems. This is a raised roof Boler with a roof vent. It Started as a Kitchen Reno- Project Boler

Thank you all so much for the great information. I think I will look for a Boler or early Scamp and do the wheel swap. So happy!
