Thanks in advance
We are a family of 4, with two young boys, ages 5 and 2. We bought a 14' widebody Burro
last year and we love it! My hubby and I sleep on the full sized rear bed which we can convert into a table during the day if the weather is poor. The boys sleep either on the front bed(converts to dinette during the day) feet to feet, or my 5 year old sleeps on the floor and the 2 year old takes the bed. We do not have a bathroom or porta potti and it works just fine for us. We were tent campers as well before the kiddos were born. But the trailer just makes camping easier as a family.
I love that it does not take long to set up or tear down camp. We have been known to pull into a campground very late at night, back into the space, unhitch, chock the wheels, pull down the jacks and get the boys into bed in under 15 minutes!
We towed with a Honda Oddyssey last year and a Honda Piliot now. Both are the same engine, so they are essentially the same and worked great. But the Pilot is a better fit for our Burro
, since it has a pretty high ground clearance. But personally, I loved towing with the minivan because it was a bit more comical looking to see our Burro
towed by our van than an SUV.
Best of luck finding a trailer that suits you and your family.
