Write down how often you use it and what you use it for. We haven't had one for 7 years and don't miss it.

: ) I'm just ramblin' as I pass through...

Cari & I use ours nearly every outing. Handy for getting webbing further up a tree trunk when a simple hook-handle doesn't do the trick. Plus cleaning the van's roof.

Cleaning the van's roof is an admitted issue.

We have a one step folding stool for the doorway that allows me to reach to the center of the Odyssey's roof.

Similarly I can reach most of the Scamp's roof except the raised center section. Occasionally I'll borrow a ladder from one of our 'big boy brethren'. How many ladders does a campground need?

I usually wipe the parts of the Odyssey and Scamp down whenever we get a heavy dew.

Funny thing is my wife really luvs this thing and it takes a bit for her 5'2" frame to climb up into the cab.

Just so you won't be disappointed...
We are snug as a bug and happy with what they have.

Fact is, when you find what works best for you, you too will be snug as a bug and happy with what you have, at least until circumstances change.

To use cars as a comparison, I have owned eighty plus cars, some bought with my heart some bought with my mind.

The heart cars in general, brought great satisfaction for a short time. The mind cars were kept longer because they gave me more of what I needed at the expense of what I thought I wanted.

The best ones were bought with my mind and then won my heart.
I hope you find that one trailer which does this for you.

To paraphrase an "old saw"...
Think twice, buy once!

Oddly enough, my Scamp was bought more with my heart and then won my mind with use.
