Hi, I am jerry from N.C.

Glad to become a reader and user of this forum. I am sure that I will be learning a lot and hope that I can also be able to give some info as well. At the present we are looking for a fiberglass around 2000 # weight, of course it has to have a shower and a toilet { as per the BOSS}. Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Ya'll have a great New Year.

Hi Jerry and Welcome to the group...

I am guessing that 2000 lbs is your tow vehicles (TV) limit. That being the case, most that weigh under that will have to have a dry weight some somewhere around 1500 lbs. which leaves the Scamp 13 with front bath being about 90% of those that will fit the bill that may include a shower.

In looking at them you need to know that all 13' Scamps with a front bath may not have the shower and hot water option. Loaded and ready to go, our 13' with bath and hot water, but no shower weighed close to 1800 lbs.

There may be others, but the weight limit, plus wanting a bathroom with a shower, will be limiting factors.

Good luck hunting and be sure to ask lots of questions.

Welcome to the group Jerry. What are you planning to use as a tow rig? It's tow rating will determine what trailers are available to choose from.

I'm just down the road in sc. If you'd like to look at a 16' casita I'd be happy to do a show and tell.

Here is a listing of typical real world FGRV trailer weights.

You can see that's it's difficult to stay under your 2000 lb limit with anything over 13' long.

Hello Jerry in NC,
Im in NC too (Durham). I have a Casita LD 17 foot. It is more than your requested weight limit but you can take a look at mine (not for sale--love mine too much)
