Seeking 13' Fiberglass Travel Trailer

We are looking for a 13' fiberglass travel trailer in good condition in 3-5K range. We live in Southern California, and would love to find something within 500 miles or so.

Main challenges: Need to keep in garage and tall husband.

Favorites include: Boler/Scamp, Perris Pacer/Minit, Burro/Uhaul, Campster/Hunter, etc.

Keeping an open mind, but ready to spring for the right one!

Really appreciate all the helpful guidance and tips on this terrific site!

Hi Janine, welcome to FiberglassRV! You'll need to be prepared to pounce when you see something. The adage "You snooze, you lose" really applies to all molded trailers in usable condition in your price range.

I'd suggest also keeping an eye on: Molded Fiberglass Trailers | Fiberglass RV's For Sale You can use the pull-downs across the top to filter brands and location.

Good luck on your egg hunt!

Although a few have used the trick of putting on very small wheels and tires when squeezing their FGRV's into a garage, the only ones on your list that will fit "as-is" are the Campster and the Hunter Compact/Juniors.

All that said, at best your tall husband will have to learn how to shrink a little, both when standing and when sleeping. If you would like to see our Hunter Compact-II for size reference send us a p.m. We are in Diamond Bar

Thanks!

Thank you Donna and Bob for the encouragement and advice. We keep learning as much as we can about the different options, pros and cons, of the various models, etc., so we can find a camper that is right for us--then we will do our best to "pounce" on the golden egg!

Happy to help. I should have mentioned that, in addition to the Hunter Compact-II, we also have a 13" Lil'Bigfoot you can see at the same time if you would like. Neither are actively for sale, but you can check size, fit and features if you like.

Found one!

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to update my search for a camper, but just wanted to say that we found one! We bought a 1988 Perris Pacer from a nice couple down in Chula Vista. Now the real fun begins!
