Welcome to FGRV, Cherie! I noticed from your profile you're looking for a trailer. Is there a specific size or make you have in mind? Best wishes in your quest!

19-20' is large for a molded fiberglass trailer. There are only a few companies making larger trailers (Escape, Bigfoot, Oliver) and they can be fairly pricey. A smaller Escape (15'- now discontinued, 17', or 19') might fit your needs. So might an older Bigfoot 17'.

Casita makes a popular line of 17' trailers. Both Scamp and Casita make 16' models that are quite a bit lighter, but also tighter in the main bed. Both companies have been around a long time, so you will find used units at a range of price points.

Other makes to watch for include Parkliner (only 15', but includes a true 60" queen bed, a side dinette, and a bath), Eggcamper (18' and very roomy with a full bed and bath, but all-electric), and Lil Snoozy (18.5' with an oversized queen bed and bath). All three are newer companies, so used availability is limited.

If you're on a limited budget, there are other vintage models that come up in your size range from time to time.

As I posted in your other thread, "lightweight" means different things to different people. You'll need to determine the towing capacity of your vehicle. This thread has some useful data on actual loaded towing weights of common fiberglass models: Trailer Weights in the Real World

What are you going to be using for a tug? That alone will determine the size you can tow.

Welcome to the forum. Scamp 19 foot 5th wheel is another possibility if you have, or want to get a small/medium size truck. Check it out:Lite Fifth Wheel RV Travel Trailers 19' - Scamp Trailers

Per her other thread, I believe she is looking to tow with a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder V6 with a 5000 pound capacity.
