Both my wife and I grew up camping and for the last 5 years we've had a Sunlite pop-up truck camper. With the recent addition of our first baby last spring, we are looking to move up to a trailer. My parents and I camped for about 15 years in a 13' Cascade travel trailer and I'm a big fan of small, easy to tow trailers.
The one catch is that whatever we get has to fit inside an 8' high garage door (actually 7' 11" measured). I started out looking at Hi-Lo's and while they are nice, they are not a budget-conscious alternative! So my question to you is... Burro
, and Scamp
all advertise a total exterior height of 7' 10''. Is that a true total height or just to the top of the body, not including vents? I've got emails into the manufacturer's, but I'm hoping for some real world experiences here.
I'd love to get a vintage trailer and rebuilt it to my spec's, but realistically our daughter would be out of highschool before I finished it, so we'll be looking for a 1-5 year old unit. We've got 2 tow vehicles, one rated at 10,000 lbs and one at 5,000 lbs, so weight
isn't really an issue for me.
Thanks all - I'm learning lots off of this site!
