Basically this rapper was in a Maserati at a red light when a Range Rover pulled up next to him and the "pimp" inside finished off an argument that they had at a nightclub with bullets. The Maserati lurched forward and hit the cab as it was going through the light and the cab exploded. I'd look into some armor around that fuel tank. LOL!!

I've heard of brand new Scamp 13 from the factory under $9k. Is the UHaul that you are talking about the one that was just posted on this forum titled "SC, U haul camper? If so that is bigger than a 13 and might be worth it.

I have made my decision. I plan on going with the Uhaul camper. It has a small shower/porta potty. We have just recently sold a 30' 5th wheel and our main reason was to scale back and go smaller. So, thanks for the advice and I have reserved the uhaul. Pick it up on Thursday. So, I will be a egg type owner after Thursday. Are they called egg owners or what?Looking forward to it. Hope to talk alot more with you all. Thanks

That is not a 13 foot UHaul, if it is the one I think it is. It is a 16 foot, which is quite rare.

This one? http://charleston.craigslist.org/rvs/3633749781.html

The shower porta. Potty makes it the larger 16 ' version which is called the VT. A little heavier but well within the tow limits. It has surge brakes and is very well built. They come up for sale so rarely that the are typically priced close to their smaller cousins the CT. Sellers measure the shell find it to be 13' and assume it is the smaller trailer. I have see one that the seller knew to be aVT priced at $7000+ We are very happy with our VT. My seller wanted $4500 for it 4 years ago and thought it was a CT and I didn't know what it was when I bought it but thought it was a good deal then.

Michael, are the VTs as wide as their Burro cousins (92")? I ask because extra width can be a very good thing but usually don't see much about that in UHaul listings.

I think you're going to be happy with the longer trailer, Papa-T.

About Brakes: Rule of thumb (and the law in most areas) for trailer brakes is anything over 1500 lbs. In the case of the 16' Scamp no way will you ever be under 1500 lbs.

About Price: a 16' SCAMP, in decent shape, for $6500 would be a steal any time of year in California.

About Condition: In both example learn a lot about collapsed suspension on these two eggs before you even go looking. Either one has the potential to need some work in that area and it ain't cheap.

Good Luck

Jack: about the best you can get is 78" inside dimension where the back table makes into the larger bed. and even that is problomatic as it bows in to accommodate the windows about 6" above that area. I am 6' and if I stretch out my toes, they and my head will touch when I lay down. No wonder the wide body Burro is the "Holy Grail" for taller people. I Think the CT and VT have about the same width based on teh one CT example I have seen.

Michael, the wide body Burros are 85" wide (interior) at just below the windows down to the bed/seating deck. They share the large radius corners with the UHauls. Because of this radius, the length of bed is somewhat less than 84" at the extreme rear. I always have the position furthest aft and avoid the corner next my head by moving a bit toward the foot. Neither my wife nor myself is over 5'-8" so we have more than enuf room with a couple of dogs asleep at our feet.
