Thanks

If you have to have A/C then make sure to get a trailer set up for it. Some trailers don't have the support needed for such a heavy item. Trailer roofs have been known to sink in because of the weight.

Once you decide on a new trailer to purchase I suggest that you start a new thread on this forum and ask for recommendations for options. One option I had never heard of prior to purchasing our 2011 new 13' Scamp was to "opt out" of the decals. We must store our trailer outdoors 100% of the time and the rock guard decal is now aging/cracking. I really don't like the idea of boldly "advertising" and would, now, choose not to have the decals.

I'm sure you will get lots of other opinions, no matter which trailer you choose.

The one reason to not put on decals is so they don't go bad. This is called a naked trailer. But the manufacturer may charge you a substantial fee for that. They like the advertising as you travel. They may not tell you about the fee if you don't ask when ordering the trailer. I've heard them say this when in the showroom.
