There are some other advantages to having a narrow trailer and that is parking regulations. For instance in Seattle I can park my Campster on residential streets. The code says no vehicles on residential streets overnight if they are wider than 80". If needed I can then boondock in the city in a nice safe residential neighborhood. But if I had a wider RV then if I wanted to park it overnight I would either have to take it onto private property or park in industrial zoned areas.

So before you decide figure out where you might want to be parking it. If you are going to park along curbs remember it can be somewhat difficult to fit into a space with a wide trailer. There are always compromises to be made for decisions about what works best. But many people stay in RV parks or campgrounds so width is not an issue for overnight stays.

I'm curious if Seattle enforcement officers carry a holstered tape measure on their equipment belt?

A quick look at the lighting configuration on the rear will tell you if its over 6'8"

...also, you may need to use the aftermarket side mirrors to see past the wide trailer.

Part of the reason I went with Scamp was because of the wider aisle. I have found it very easy to move past others in it.

No doubt. My next door neighbour thought it a good idea to ask the municipality to put up no parking signs in the turnaround in front of my house and his.
I pointed out that then they would park in front of my house, and his.
