Your 4-Cylinder vehicle can probably tow this VERY lightweight under 1400 lb travel trailer. (GVW 1650 lb / 750KG). Uses the simple 4-wire trailer connector and no electric brakes are required.

* The Triple E, TM14 Surfside is a classic fibreglass trailer from 1977. Similar to its Trillium relative, they just keep on going, and going... At 14 feet it is a lot bigger and nicer than the Boler alternative.
* Very suitable for "off grid" camping using the 12-Volt battery & dual Propane tanks, with onboard water bottle, or plugged in to 120V and water at campgrounds. I installed 12 Volt florescent lamps to help extend battery use time when off grid.
* The large refrigerator and freezer actually came from a VW van, and runs on propane or 120V.
* Includes a carbon monoxide - smoke detector, spare tire, rear piggy-back storage box, and a chemical type porta-potty.

* HEATER: When on 120VAC its easy to heat using those small ceramic heaters that the hardware stores sell. Last year I installed a new propane Catalytic heater, but I am going to remove it, unless you want to purchase it for $350 extra. It is an Olympian Wave 3. These are very quiet since there is no fan involved. I can leave the hookups there if you want to get your own.

* SOLAR PANELS: There are three solar panels installed (45 Watts) which I will remove, unless you want to purchase them for an extra $300. These are used to charge the 12V battery for extended off grid camping. I will also remove the solar panel controll panel (see photo), and cover up the hole with a cover plate.

I love this little trailer, but we are now moving up to a bigger unit.
Its has served me well, travelling all through Atlantic Canada for the past 5 years.

Yes, the first photo is an actual photo of the trailer. I photoshopped it into a nicer background. (I am a photographer)
PS: The vanGO name which is in the pictures is my Geocaching handle. This vinyl label will be removed too.
