Good luck finding a Little Joe. We have one and love it. In fact we are in it right now near Mt. Rushmore. Just arrived from Dallas. They tow like a dream.

And for anyone over 6 feet tall like me, the 6'2" headroom and the 6'6" bed is great.

And a real fun thing about it is that every gas station and every campground you pull in to, people come running wanting to see it. Everyone has seen ones such as the Casita but no one has seen these.

Maybe they have a trade-in: Lightweight Trailers - Compact Travel Campers - Weiscraft Trailers

I saw a Little Joe for the first time at the Niagara Wine Escape Rally. I can see why you covet one. Really neat.

Me too! I've been looking for one and got price lists from Weiscraft a couple of years ago, but never got to see one until the Niagara wine Escape rally. There's one living in AL but we haven't crossed paths yet.
They are a nice camper and would work great with our Subaru.

We bought our Little Joe to tow with our short-wheelbase Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler is built for off-roading, not towing but it performs fine with the Little Joe.

Another convenience is that I easily roll it around the driveway by myself. (My level driveway helps)

And at about 1200 pounds, towing is safe with no trailer brakes. I have made some pretty hard stops with no problem.

When people with big rigs want to look at it, we tell them we have everything they have except a bathroom. They are fascinated with it.

I added a shelf above the sink for a microwave and added a connector for cable TV so in reality we do have almost everything the big guys have, just more compact!

I also added connectors for a "King Camp" lightweight awning that can be attached to the side or to the rear where the door is.

Here it is on Amazon - -

Hi all! I just spoke with Ray at Weiscraft, because we are also interested in the Lil Joe. I did ask about the interior height, and he said it's 6' even ... so I'm a little confused. (My husband is 6' so this could be a deal breaker for us.)

He also explained that they don't sell used/trade-ins. As a manufacturer, apparently they can't per Colorado law.

He did seem very willing/able to work with a customer to build according to the customer's needs/desires. All in all, he was friendly and helpful.

Our measured heights are usually taken when we are standing ramrod straight and not what we typically present. In my 13' Casita if I stood that way my head was uncomfortably pressed against the ceiling, but in my normal stance it was not a problem.
