So a small trailer looks good for the two of us (plus the two Corgis, of course). And light sounds better.
🤔 We started camping in a B class we bought used. Had a lot of fun with it camping from Maine to Florida. Pros and cons to everything and after camping for extended periods of time in 1place it got to be a pain packing everything up just to go out for an ice cream or a 6 pack of beer. We now have an Escape 5.0 TA that we tow with a F150. Both bought new for a lot less than $100k. The F 150 is my daily driver, the trailer has way more room than our B class had and I get better mileage towing the trailer than I ever got with the B class. 😎

Our Hunter Compact II fits in our standard-size garage next to my car that pulls it around about once a month.
